The Best of Multnomah Falls

I promised I’d be back to show you Multnomah Falls, the most popular of all the waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge. It was our last stop before heading back home, and it was a perfect and rain-free fall day. At 620 feet, Multnomah Falls… Continue Reading “The Best of Multnomah Falls”

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.

Dreaming of a Road Trip

I hope there’s a road trip in my future this spring. I don’t know what the rules will be. We’d take our little trailer on lonely highways through wide open spaces with sunsets like this and practice social distancing. ~ Susanne

Let’s Go Visit the Daffodils!

At least virtually!  It was a year ago that we went to see the daffodils in bloom in Skagit Valley, the first time ever, though I’ve lived in Washington my whole life! We made the journey 60 miles north of Seattle to Roozengaarde, which… Continue Reading “Let’s Go Visit the Daffodils!”

Three Port Towns – Two Days!

Yes, it can be done!  Quite easily in fact if you live in Seattle.  We were looking for a quick getaway and decided on Port Townsend,  a charming Victorian seaport on the Olympic Peninsula. We headed north to Edmonds to take the ferry to… Continue Reading “Three Port Towns – Two Days!”
