Can’t Get Enough of the Waterfalls on the Historic Columbia River Highway

We are nothing if not consistent. One year ago we visited the Columbia Gorge to celebrate my husband’s birthday – we just returned from the same place yesterday. And why not? The Gorge is a fantastic place to visit anytime of year, and it’s… Continue Reading “Can’t Get Enough of the Waterfalls on the Historic Columbia River Highway”

Outdoors in the Pacific Northwest

Last week we enjoyed the great outdoors on our trip to Oregon where we found giant bubbles at Seaside, took a cool walk at Cannon Beach and visited Herman the Sturgeon at the Bonneville Fishery. Herman is over 10 feet long and 80 years… Continue Reading “Outdoors in the Pacific Northwest”

Waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge

No trip to the Columbia Gorge is complete without stopping by the many waterfalls that line the Historic Scenic Highway.

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… Continue Reading “Ice Cream Coming and Going”

Exploring Fort Stevens

For our one and only camping trip this year, Fort Stevens State Park had everything, including 3,700 acres of wetland, forest and dunes, and even a shipwreck! The campground is one of the largest in the Western United States with over 9 miles of… Continue Reading “Exploring Fort Stevens”

Hooray For Camping!

Our first camping trip of the year. Finally. Not that we didn’t try earlier. It seems that pandemic camping is in. When things began to open up in late May our favorite campgrounds filled up quickly, without us. And last month, when we tried… Continue Reading “Hooray For Camping!”
