Clackamas Valley

2016 Out West, Oregon, Road Trip

The AccuWeather promise of sunshine today wasn’t evident as we were packing up and preparing to depart this morning. It was under gray skies that we headed west on I-84 toward Gresham traveling between Historic US-30 and the Columbia River. We saw the Crown Point Vista House way up on its promontory overlooking the river. Photos of it have been among those that have graced our AppleTV screensaver since we were there in 2008. From Gresham we headed south along an incredibly scenic byway through the Clackamas Valley. Ultimately we settled in at Cougar Crossing in the Willamette National Forest under sunny skies. Initially we were the only ones here but before nightfall one other site at the opposite end of the campground was occupied.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
