Bonneville Dam, Hood River

Oct 03, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Lion


Our second day on the mighty Columbia River found us traversing the Bonneville Dam and Lock at 7 a.m., just before a late breakfast. From there, it was a two hour cruise up river to the town of Hood River, the area for our day’s activities. There was a walk on the Old Scenic Highway, exploring town, going to a farm, or antique plane and car museum, or tasting a “cold one” at the Full Sail Brewery.
