Moving right along…It seems WordPress is changing it’s format and it’s going to take some time to learn, so I’m going to publish as many posts as I can while I still know what I’m doing!

These next set of pictures are from our trip to Memaloose in late September. We love camping in Memaloose. The views are great, we love Hood River, and really, as far as campgrounds go, it’s the only game in town. There aren’t a lot of camping options in the Gorge, but if you are lucky enough to get the best sites along the river, you’re in for a treat.



Handy that the scenery cooperated so nicely with our decor!

We spend many spring weekends in Memaloose. It’s a short drive from Portland and you can usually count on sunshine. We weren’t really sure what to expect in September after a long, hot summer. The green oasis we like to camp at was sure to be dry and lifeless. Nonetheless, we wanted a weekend away and decided to check it out. Glad we did!

The Columbia River Gorge is really beautiful all times of the year and autumn was no exception. The heat of summer had subsided a bit, and although the days were warm, the evenings were cool and breezy. The lush greens turned to golden yellows and were striking in their own way.

We spent a fun weekend in Hood River and on Sunday we decided to take a drive to one of our favorite wineries across the river in Washington. If you’re ever in the area, 14 Hands Winery is a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Grateful we have such beautiful camping options so close to home. I’m looking forward to our spring getaways again….


Sure loving the sofa area…makes coffee in the a.m. extra nice!
