On Wednesday, we went to Fort Clatsop in the morning. This is the outpost that was built by Lewis and Clark’s expedition when it got to the Pacific Ocean. We toured a recreation of the fort:

Emma participated in Candle Making:

We saw a demonstration of musket fire:

And we ate at Taco Bell for lunch.

In the afternoon, we drove to the Columbia Gorge, where the Columbia River flows through a thin channel as it exits the mountains, where there’s a lot of great waterfalls.

Our first stop was at Wahkeena Falls:

This is where Emma took off up the trail up the mountain, even though it wasn’t the trail that I was planning on using.

That actually turned out to be good, because we ended up (2 miles and 700 vertical feet later) at Fairy Falls:

And I took some more photos of falls and things coming down the trail.

We then went to Multnomah Falls: (like everyone else)

And went to our hotel in old town Hood River:

And dinner at the Full Sail Brewery.
