The morning was spent exploring the Crow Butte area on foot, on a variety of hikes. We were shuttled to shore by Zodiac and then broke off into several groups depending on interest and hike choices. Each hike was led by a staff naturalist, although a few chose to explore on their own. The blustery winds made for a rather wet return back to the ship. The afternoon and early evening we cruised farther north up the Columbia traversing through the McNary Dam locks and then crossing from Oregon into Washington and then turning onto the Snake River.
