I didn’t cover many miles, but I did stay right on the river all day and saw some amazing sights.   A few mountain streams and a departing view of Mt. Hood, which I think is one of my favorite places so far.   Daily data:   Beginning odometer at Best Western on Mt. Hood was 30,700 miles. Ending odometer at Days Inn in Gresham, Oregon is 30,805 miles. Bought fuel at Mt. Hood.  Bought 9.687 galloons @ $4.129 for a total of 40.00. This was not a fill-up because of the price per gallon. I just wanted enough to be sure I could get down the mountain. Meals for the day was $29.00. Lodging for tonight is $65.57   + April 25, 2013   [alpine-phototile-for-picasa-and-google-plus src=”user_album” uid=”117292386093793315084″ ualb=”5870937786967077329″ imgl=”fancybox” dltext=”Picasa” style=”floor” row=”4″ num=”150″ size=”220″ border=”1″ highlight=”1″ align=”center”...
Columbia River Locks and Dams

Columbia River Locks and Dams

Water level control, power production, transportation support and fish management; at the highest level.   Very impressive operations. Although Lewis and Clark didn’t have to deal with them, the river is more navigable and the salmon are thriving.   Cascade Locks N45.67088 W121.89283   Bonneville Dam N45.64223 W121.94269   [alpine-phototile-for-picasa-and-google-plus src=”user_album” uid=”117292386093793315084″ ualb=”5870939277808707121″ imgl=”fancybox” dltext=”Picasa” style=”floor” row=”4″ num=”150″ size=”220″ border=”1″ highlight=”1″ align=”center”...
Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls

Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls

Surprisingly beautiful waterfalls  Reminds me of some I saw in Hawaii.   The walls of the gorge are steep and rocky with very thick greenery so it should not be a surprise that springs and snow melt would produce some pretty grand waterfalls.   Horsetail Falls N45.59049 W122.06858   Multomah Falls N45.57842 W122.11894     [alpine-phototile-for-picasa-and-google-plus src=”user_album” uid=”117292386093793315084″ ualb=”5870941514422922305″ imgl=”fancybox” dltext=”Picasa” style=”floor” row=”4″ num=”150″ size=”220″ border=”1″ highlight=”1″ align=”center”...
