Early in the morning, the bridge team of National Geographic Sea Bird navigated from The Dalles to Hood River, Oregon along the Columbia River. We spent our morning enjoying the collection at the Western Aeroplane & Automobile Museum followed by a visit to Draper Girls’ Farm in the agriculturally rich Hood River Valley. We headed back to our ship for lunch followed by walks in the afternoon at Beacon Rock, an incredible volcanic plug with stunning views, and Multnomah Falls, one of Oregon’s most beautiful waterfalls. We also had the opportunity to visit the Bonneville Fish Hatchery, featuring the famous sturgeon named Herman who is 89 years old! After a full day of activities and learning, we gathered for cocktail hour on the bow as we watched sunset and navigated the historic Bonneville Lock. After dinner on board our beautiful ship, we were treated to a presentation by historian Doug Crispin. What a fantastic and unforgettable day!
