Cruising the Columbia!

bridge-of-the-godsgroup-at-boatResidents, accompanied by staff and volunteers, recently enjoyed a special day-trip aboard the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler.

The day included lunch on the riverbanks at Cascade Locks, followed by a beautiful cruise that featured up-close views of Bonneville Dam, Bridge of the Gods, Beacon Rock, Native American fishing platforms and other landmarks of the iconic Columbia River.

We even spotted planes gathering water to fight the area fire (the devastating Eagle Creek Fire broke out the following day).
