Upriver Along the Columbia

Saturday, May 10, 2008 -- Memaloose State Park near The Dalles, OR

Today we're heading upriver again, about 125 miles to Umatilla, OR., a town of about 5,000 people on the south shore of the Columbia where it begins it's big bend toward the northwest and into Washington. There are some good Lewis & Clark points-of-interest in this area as they spent a few days in this area preparing for the run downriver to the ocean.

Winds are light on our back, skies overcast, no rain in the forecast -- almost ideal driving conditions.
