Columbia Gorge

Or as a friend likes to call it "Columbia George."

Since I knew it was going to be in the 90's, I took the dog and car yesterday up the Columbia. I didn't have a plan really. I stopped at places that looked interesting and walked around.

Skamania was absolutely beautiful. Lots of wind surfing and the town was clean, small, and full of tourists. The drive was amazing.

I took 205 north to 14 east to Hood River Bridge, then I hung out in Cascade Locks for a bit, then headed home.

Beacon Rock

After hiking Cape Horn Falls I headed up to Beacon Rock. This place is very popular. It's very beautiful.









Cape Horn Falls

Yesterday I hopped on my bike and rode up HWY 14 in Washington. I love the ride, and the weather was perfect.

First I did the hike to Cape Horn Falls. The main trail to the falls is closed this time of year due to bird nesting in the area, but the hike is still fun.






Camping at the Beach

I went camping this weekend and stayed at Barview Camp Grounds. It was nice. The campsite is well maintained and it's not too crowded.



I made S'mores


I made a fire
