This part of the Columbia River Gorge is very different from the Western side of the state……much more arid and the temps run quite abit warmer. The forecast was for low 90’s and it was right on the button even though it was fall. No rain forcast yet but we didn’t care since setting up camp isn’t the easiest in the mud….WE arrived about noon and sure enough , no one was in our site so we backed in and arranged for camper, boat, and pickups , all pretty long for these sites. We have a canopy for the picnic table and that keeps most of the leaves, dust and tree droppings at bay while there. I also have lighting with candles etc. that get hung out for the evenings.
Tomorrow we launch and fish……This place requires us to get the boat out every day also because the parking lot is questionable at night. The Indians have they’re part of the lot with tents etc. and whole families are there and they come and go all night, as they fish with gill nets and harvest salmon by the container full…….No problem, we are getting good at launching and retrieving……
, Happy Trails!!
