We have just returned from a trip of four days in the Columbia River Gorge. It's an area that holds many memories for Jeanette and me, starting with our Honeymoon Bicycle Tour in May of 1993. We returned there many times in the following years on bike tours, day hikes, and backpacks. Spring is our favorite time to be there and enjoy the fantastic wild flowers.
Horsetheif Lake Campground - May 1993
Horsetheif Lake Campground - April 2017
Times have changed, in 1993 our transportation was bicycles and we had the campground to ourselves. It was very quiet. This year we traveled in luxury in our RV, the campground was full by night fall and our neighbors with an alcohol fueled party where up chopping wood until 1:30am in the morning.
In March of 2006, we took Buster on one of his longest hikes on The Dalles Riverfront Trail.
