Columbia River trip

Three nights along the Columbia River.


A petrified tree stump at the Petrified Forest State Park Frenchman's coulee - the "feathers", a natural rock formation, very popular with climbers. This gap in the rocks had a strong breeze running through it - it was like a natural air conditioner




Not a flattering picture! We ran into a sandstorm, and Peter and I got out of the car, just to see what it was like.


The Riverwalk trail along the Columbia river, next to our hotel in Richland. We found some kids who were fishing And someone swimming across the river


There was a really neat playground there






Later we had a picnic at a park on the river, and saw this big barge go by. I wonder if they just go between dams? A short hike at Twin Sisters


There was a freakishly large number of these spiders, EVERYWHERE. We waited till I found some big sticks to whack down all the spider webs






Kenny found a snake skin Just past Twin Sisters, there had been a derailment, which was being cleared up


An Amazon data center is being built in Umatilla, Oregon, where we stayed for the night. And right next to it, the Two Rivers Correctional Institute - a prison. This is a shot of their workout area


Cottonwood Canyon, Oregon's newest state park. It was VERY quiet, we saw about 5 other visitors.
