Where I stayed
Lewis and Clark RV Park
After some confusion amid I-5, I-205 and several other roads in the area, we found WA Hwy 14 and set off. This road winds along the Columbia, but on the north side. It starts off a dandy, high-speed four lane road and gradually shrinks to a narrow two-lane version of itself. We stopped for lunch at about one o'clock in a truck parking lot somewhere.
It took some time and a few electronic gadgets to get us to the park, but it was a beautiful ride. The campground is located near Beacon Rock, which protrudes a long ways up and out of the adjacent landscape
The campground itself is an old one. There are about fifty full-time residents and another thirty or so overnight or short-stay spots. At twenty dollars a night with water and electricity, it's a steal.
This road follows some of the Lewis and Clark Trail, but then, doesn't every road in the northwest? The sign from the park tells it all...
Tomorrow we'll drive a short way to Bonneville Dam to view the fishies and then down the road to the Maryhill Winery for a visit. Just might get some shots of grapes. Thanks again for stopping by and spending some time with us.
