Hood River and Beyond

May 06, 2019 - National Geographic Quest


After a peaceful night anchored just off Cascade Lock, the guests and staff headed to shore for a full morning of activities. Some went to Multnomah Falls, some to climb Beacon Rock, some to Bonneville Dam, and the most adventurous headed off to do whitewater rafting on the White Salmon River. Most guests also were able to visit the wonderful fish hatchery at the dam. After returning to the ship for lunch, we were off for afternoon exploring some Hood River highlights! The Western Antique Airplane & Automobile Museum, or WAAAM, along with a tour through the many orchards above the city, near Mount Hood, were on the options this afternoon, along with a chance to spend some time in town!
