Sailing in Oregon

 I am linking up with Fiona's Green Day and Tricia's  Watery Wednesday II and Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 

I took a lot of photos while vacationing in Oregon..On this day we made a few stops on the way to Mount Hood.




Oregon in July ..Hubby and I traveled along the scenic Columbia River highway. Stopping at a fish hatchery and Cascade Locks.


A visit to the fish hatchery.




A view of the bridge connecting Oregon to Washington state. The bridge is called the Bridge of the Gods.





Sailing and windsurfing is popular sport on the Hood River in Oregon.



I hope you enjoyed these Oregon sights, thanks for coming along.

Thanks for stopping by to see my post and thanks to Tricia the host of Watery Wednesday II  and to Fiona for hosting Green Day  and to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

  3. What beautiful photographs...a place I have longed to visit. Our very best friends just moved to Oregon from Maine and I think this will be our next trip. Hoping to see this beautiful state someday soon.

  11. I wonder if that's the same bridge they bungee jump from, very high bridge & beautiful scene... they all are. How do they keep from running over each other w/ all the sailboats on the water? =)

  12. Making me homesick now for sure Eileen! Isn't the Columbia Gorge beautiful? Bill and I grew up in Eastern Washingon and for a long tme after we moved to Oregon we would make that trip 3 or 4 times a year to see our parents...I never tired of that portion of the trip! (Some of the rest of it got a little old after a while ;>)!)

  28. I do like that fish shot!

    The boat the goes between the pillars can take about 35 (?) people - its not small - but it is long and narrow!
