Columbia River Gorge and Hood River, Oregon

Oct 15, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Lion

As the sky grew lighter this morning, we glimpsed Multnomah Falls, cascading down from the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge.  As we moved further up the Columbia, we made our way through Bonneville Lock.  Soon after the wind picked up considerably as we headed to Hood River, where we visited the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum, the Mosier Tunnels along the Historic Columbia River Highway, and the Full Sail Brewery.
