    Columbia River Camp

    September 23, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    The night before we rode into Portland we managed to find another winner of a wild campsite on the banks of the Columbia River. We even got to camp early enough to enjoy watching ships go by as the sun set and listen to podcasts over dinner.Read more

    Beautiful Sunsets

    June 17, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    N1 came north for dinner (our kids know who that is - Nathan). After dinner at a less than five star establishment, we grabbed a bit o’Bourbon from Portland (thanks Nate) and took a walk along the river.

    Nate complained about the humidity (45% - a far cry from the 95% in Va Beach) but the night was pretty stunning.

    Rainbows over Mt. St. Helens; Mt. Hood in partial visibility and incredible colors.

    Dike Road

    June 17, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    This park, right on the Columbia, is right at “sea level”. I’ve seen signs that the river has captured a lot of the beach, with irrigation heads 4’ above the sand (where grass used to be).

    So the name of the road to get here makes sense. “Dike Road”.

    Walking Rosie this morning, the “dike” is clearly visible; with the farmland being a good 10’ below the dike.

    The park is also way below the dike, BUT, it’s on the wrong side. So the infrastructure in the park is at risk, not a lot of structures.

    Also, a sea-going tug came down the river, heading into Portland. About 5minutes after it passed, massive waves (wakes) hit the beach. It was easy to see how the erosion occurred.
