THE LAST! VACATION PICHERS
After cooking dinner (a nice grilled thickburger with grilled onion, mustard and relish), and doing the dishes, I decided I needed eine wenig Nachtmusik. For my first selection I put on Deep Breakfast. Sort of a Swan Lake for synthisizers. Now I am ready to post the last of my vacation pictures.
The white building with the red roof is the Columbia Gorge Hotel. It is about 100 years old. They serve a 8-course breakfast that has to be eaten to be believed. So, me, sis, and bro-in-law did the marathon breakfast while looking out on the mighty Columbia river.
Running next to the hotel is a small stream. It was filled with fresh rain water and snow melt. The water fall drops 208 feet to the river below
After visiting the hotel, we headed back toward Portland and stopped at Multnoma Falls. This fall drops 620 feet. We walked around and shot some pictures then went home to where it was not 36 degrees with a nice breeze blowing.
