Mt. Hood, Cascade Locks, and Columbia River Gorge
We drove to Mt. Hood for a pleasant morning at Timberline Lodge. After visiting the mountain, we ended up spending quite a while at a small town called Cascades Locks, population 1000. We met the mayor who was mowing the lawn at the park and is also the paddle boat captin. There was a very small beautiful island called Thunder Island that we explored. We did make it to the Multnomah falls, but late. We watched the sun set at Vista House on the Historical Route 30. We are going back tomorrow via Route 14 from Vancouver over the Bridge of the Gods and have brunch at the falls.
