Hood River, Cascade Lock, Bonneville Dam

Sep 21, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Lion


At about seven o’clock this morning, we arrived at Hood River for our first round of adventures for the day. After breakfast the guests split into two groups, one going to the WAAAM Museum, and the other for a walking or biking adventure on a historic scenic highway, near the Mosier Tunnels. Both groups had the chance after that to sample some local beers, and get a tour of the brewery. Then it was off to Cascade Locks, lunch on board, and off again either to Bonneville Dam, or Multnomah Falls and Bonneville Fish Hatchery. Our final activity for the day was traversing through Bonneville Lock, our last lock of the journey down the Mighty Columbia!
