This is where the land looks better and the reservation ended!
Today the air is clear, the sky is blue and WE CAN SEE THE MOUNTAIN!
Of course we are 75 miles away. Why couldn't it have been like this yesterday?
The Columbia River Valley with orchards and vineyards
Mt Hood in Oregon.

Stupid wires - couldn't get a decent shot without them. Had to go down a road where the sign said "Private - stay the *%#@ out" We decided we were in the wrong neighborhood.
While watching this, a local guy came along and told us about the river and gave us some tips. He bought a Honda Motorcycle in Binghamton once.
Horsetail Falls along "Historic Oregon Trail" along the Columbia River. That is Barb in front of the falls.
When we were touring Mt. Rainier, we met a German expatriate, 80 years old who lives in Washington now and was giving a tour to his nieces, one who lives in Stuttgart.
Anyway, he told us about this air musuem in McMinnville where the Spruce Goose is on display. Google it. It is an interesting story about the plane and Howard Hughes. They have scores of planes on display from German, Russia, U.S. and others.
Us at a C47D
Oops - another Twilight Zone Moment!
That is the shortest runway in the world. It is sitting on a building which houses a Water Park. It is part of the Evergreen Air Museum. They have IMAX shows also about flight.
