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.
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….
They’re beautiful Kim. I love wildflowers and these are my favorite colors.

Just a few days ago I was pining for some fresh content. …., and so it happened.
Please let us know where the fine bedding comes from? You have excellent taste.
YAY!! You’re back! We love Hood River, too. Spent a VERY rainy weekend in Hood River this fall and checked out Memalose. Totally going back this Spring when the trees bloom. We took our Airstream to Viento park ahem, on the train track route. LOL BIG tree canopies so a bit dark but we found an awesome hiking trail behind the park and it was a quick walk to the river. FUN.
Thank you for your fun, happy posts! Blessings!
