    Stonehenge, WA

    July 14 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 95 °F

    We drove along the Colombia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The parking lots at all the trailheads were pretty much full. We did manage a short hike but mostly spent our time driving. The north side of the river is in Washington while the south side, where we were mostly driving is in Oregon.

    Then finally found a destination goal: Stonehenge in Maryhill, WA

    It is supposedly built to scale and is what the original Stonhenge in England would look like if it was intact. It was built as a memorial to WW I by a man who heard that the original was used to sacrifice people to the gods and he felt that "in war we continue to sacrifice our fellow humans".
    It was interesting to see it but it was much smaller than I expected. I have no desire to see the original anymore even though friends claim it is full of mystery etc. I have also heard it is very touristy and crowded while this one was almost empty and had awesome views of the river below.

    Klickitat Valley, Eastern Views

    July 21, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Golden fields of wheat and alfalfa, cattle grazing, and endless wind mills harnessing the energy of incessant winds. A desolate form of beauty in eastern Washington. Goodbye Washington, we're crossing back to Oregon.Read more

    September 7-9

    September 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

    Arrived Friday at Peach Beach RV Park south of Goldendale, Washington on the Columbia River.
    After taking Kuma for a swim and buying some peaches at a fruit stand we had a nice visit with cousin Alison who lives in Goldendale.
    Saturday we spent the morning at Maryhill Museum of Art. It's fantastic and is a definite must see in the area. http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/mobile
    We rounded out our day tasting wine at Rob Williams and Maryhill wineries. We spent an hour listening to music and sharing a bottle of wine on Maryhill's patio while enjoying beautiful views of the Columbia River Gorge.
    Today we took a bike ride through the orchards and vineyards surrounding us as well as the state campground adjoining our park, ending our afternoon ride at Waving Tree tasting room.
    We head back to our home base in Boring tomorrow.

    First stop - Stonehenge!

    October 17, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 59 °F

    We decided to wander off the path right off the bat (shh...don't tell Trini!). We detoured a bit to check out the Stonehenge Memorial - well worth the visit! Who knew we had a Stonehenge in WA?!

    It was super interesting to go from verdant mountains and streams to the desert and Columbia River.Read more

    It’s F@*king Hot!

    June 26 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 104 °F

    Peach Beach RV = Water, trees, weird Stonehenge replica, fresh fruit, and Maryhill Winery. Contrary to recent reviews from our friends, the nearby town of Goldendale is not cute nor worth a stop. Maryhill Winery, though is da bomb. They have this huge outdoor concert stage right on the river. Their terrace overlooks the venue and river. Can’t wait for concerts to start back-up!Read more
