Last Saturday was the perfect day for a driving trip. I chose to go to the Columbia River Gorge and cross the river over into Washington. I felt like such a rebel. Crossing state lines isn't something I'm allowed to do on work time. So, I've always admired the gorge from the proper Oregon side of the river.
I explored the tiny, twin towns of Bingen and White Salmon.
They were s l o w l y filling the local pool for the season.
I then meandered along Highway 14, following the Columbia River back to Vancouver. When I saw a rather curious sight...
And wondered what would happen as the schooners drifted west, and the paddle boat pressed on to the east...
Phew! Crisis averted.
It was a beautiful day to be on the river no matter the form of transportation.
