Scenic Road Trip: Columbia River Gorge, Oregon (Part 3)

Well, it’s finally here. The last post from our ten-day camping/travels around beautiful Oregon and Northern California. Sometimes I think all it did was whet our appetite for more! Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. 🙂 We spent many hours our last two days down by the Columbia River, admiring the views and watching whatever action was available. Often that action included trains! One was right by our campground, another directly across the river. And they were BUSY! along the Columbia River, OR © lynne medsker

Somehow we never got to see any of them in action though. Just another reason to go back one day! Mark even has some fun with my camera while we hung out by the river, the longer we were there the more his enthusiasm developed. 

Of course a sunset and beer is about the most perfect way to end a trip (okay, my preference would be wine!) and that’s pretty much how we wrapped it up!

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful scenery…
