The Dalles, Oregon

Sep 29, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird


During the evening, we navigated west through three of the four locks on the Columbia River. This morning as we exited The Dalles lock, Mount Hood was bathed in the soft glow of the morning light. Our explorations today took us from Oregon to Washington, from cultural and natural history, to the up and coming wine regions of Washington. A fruitful day for learning more about the Columbia River Gorge.
