Paddlewheeler on the Columbia River

We have just returned from a trip up the Columbia River gorge.

We traveled on a paddle wheel boat.

The journey included 8 locks.



And jet boating on the Snake River

We saw kite boarders

 Beautiful scenery 

And lovely sunsets.

 We spotted ospreys on nests from the boat

 Turkeys in an orchard along the Snake River

As well as deer cooling off in the shade.

Bighorn sheep watched us sail by from the cliffs.

And of course we saw lots of seabirds!
Sailing the gorge was a unique way to see the area.

There is a cardinal nest in our shrub.

Four eggs


Three baby cardinals.

The birds have fledged.
One egg didn't hatch.
