So close and yet so far! It was after dark when we arrived in Hood River. As soon as we entered the Gorge, we ran into strong winds. Mark was exhausted by the time we got here. Continue reading
We woke up this morning to a bright, blue sky. What a beautiful way to start the day! Mark checked the weather report online and discovered that even if we had taken the southern route, we would have run into snow storms.
