Columbia river gorge
This morning was Sams last day of school, so to celebrate we took advantage of our synched up days off and drove out along the colombia river gorge. It's a scenic route dotted with waterfalls, old towns, and windsurfing.
Our first stop was Multnomah Falls, a beautiful waterfall, full of tourists and a few hiking trails. We had a nice picnic lunch, it was actually pretty nice out. Not too hot, and I pulled my jacket out from under the bed (so much for a summer wardrobe).
Sam makes amazing music mixes, so we had a great soundtrack for our little day trip. She and Him, The National, Beirut, all the good stuff.
We drove our way there on the Oregon side, and went the way back on the Washington side, but at one point the road was closed for about an hour, so we went an "alternate route".
After about an hour of going nowhere near the direction we wanted, and passing buffalo ranches, and Mt. Adams, we had this conversation:
Me: "Maybe we should turn around."
Sam: "We'll be fine, it's not like the highway will just end."
A few minutes later the highway ended.
Sam: "Well at least we're on a regular road."
We pass a sign that reads "One lane road ahead"
Sam: "At least it's not a dirt road."
Sign reads "Pavement ends."
So finally, when we ended up in the middle of nowhere, we headed back the way we came. But there was lots of laughter along the way :)
