Portland to Cascade Locks

We left Portland at 7:00am this morning weaving our way through the city streets until we reached the Columbia river.

We traveled east along the river for several miles before the road turned up into the Columbia River Gorge.

A several mile climb brought us to the Vista house and some remarkable views.

On our way back down into the gorge we passed several waterfalls that we stopped to enjoy.

Back down next to the river our next stop was the fish hatcheries.

They had a 70 year old Sturgeon that was over 10 feet long.

At the end of the ride we meet Tom a member of the Chain Gang who now lives in Vancouver, Washington. We saw him on the STP ride.
