On to the Columbia River Gorge! This is a big river that divides Oregon & Washington. We stayed on the Oregon side.
Now, first of all, we did NOT try to kill mom! Our defense is that she is very old and clumsy! What happened was that when we got to the park and dad was setting up the wheelie house he went to pull forward onto the levelers (see straight arrow).
Mom was standing with us by the pole (curved arrow). When dad went to pull forward, mom was going to yell when the tire was on the leveler. BUTT the tire did NOT go on top of the leveler, instead it scooted it forward and made a VERY scary noise! Me and Stanley did NOT know what it was, we thought it was a lion so we got the heck out of there! Unfortunately, our leashes went around mom's ankles and pulled her down into (and onto) the road. Oops!
There was a nice trail in our campground.
And a nice view!
We went to the Bonneville Dam.
They had a window where a guy sits all day counting fish!
There were locks but we couldn't get close to them.
There was a fish ladder but we didn't catch any fish climbing it but there were.
We also did some hikes to the falls. This was only part way up. It was very steep!
Still not to the top!
Oops, another falls.
When we got to the top of the falls we were hot and needed to cool off our paws!
Stanley found a cave!
We posed by the sign. It was Oregon's largest falls - Multnomah Falls
After we left there was a huge wildfire in this area.
Stanley gave dad a kiss.
The wildfire also affected where we went next, the Pacific Crest trail!
