Ice Cream Coming and Going

We managed to escape to the Columbia River Gorge for a few days where we traveled the old scenic highway on the Oregon side, stopping every few minutes to take in the magnificent roadside waterfalls, which I will share with you in a coming post.

In the meantime I’ll tide you over with ice cream from East Wind Drive-In in Cascade Locks, a must stop for the foot-tall soft serve ice cream cones according to my sister.

She was right, though we opted for the smaller kid sized versions which were big enough for us. I chose vanilla with a burst of swirled orange going, and opted for apple coming home.

Aren’t they pretty? Kid sized cones are $1.50 and no tax! Quite the bargain.

And yes, they taste as good as they look. πŸ™‚

Stay tuned for the waterfalls.

  1. They are very cheap indeed. My wife likes soft whip ice cream like that, but I prefer the hard variety in pots, like Ben and Jerry’s. Not that either of us eat it very often.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I have never seen swirls like that. We visit the Dairy Queen just as we did in Oregon. I like the vanilla dipped in butterscotch. Sadly they have run out of butterscotch as they approach the time of year they shut down. Yup. The Dairy Queen closes in the winter. It is a big deal when it reopens in late spring.

    • I remember going to Dairy Queen as a kid. This place in Cascade Locks was recommended to me by my sister who lives near Portland. I’d never seen swirls like that before either so pretty and tasty! It’s a new must stop place for me in the Gorge.
