Even though I am from the Pacific Northwest, I thoroughly enjoyed my Columbia/Snake river cruises. I sailed from Portland to Clarkston/Lewiston and the change of scenery was amazing. We went through historic sites, locks, dams and saw some breathtaking waterfalls. Sea lions were sunbathing on logs as the sky showed off its snow-capped mountains.
Here is a map of the itinerary which can start or end in Portland/Spokane
There are a few different companies and ships that do this itinerary but I went on an old fashioned Paddlewheeler which was great and the sound of it going around and around was mesmerizing.
We toured Astoria, Stevenson, The Dalles, Richland, Clarkston and saw many historical sites.
My pictures wouldn’t save here so I will do a good old computer restart and try again as the pictures of Multnomah falls were spectacular and would love to share.
