Summer Vacation Part III - Hood River

Breaking camp early in the morning on the 4th of July, we made the 8+ hour drive from Lake Shasta to Hood River, OR. Driving along the banks of the Columbia River provided a nice view of two waterfalls, and as we drove I thought about Lewis and Clark, and their most excellent adventure which took them from the interior of the then new country, all the way out West.

We spent two nights at my sister-in-law's house, and had a nice time watching the fireworks display on the 4th. The following day, we drove around the countryside, bought locally made fresh fruit products (jams, pies, etc.), and saw Mt. Hood. At one of our stops, the kids fed a few goats, which they enjoyed.

After two nights, it was time to head further North once again...
