Portland: Heather’s basement and beyond

For our Portland area adventures, we base camped at Ainsworth State Park due to lots of hound dog personalities to manage.  Heather’s basement still factored prominently in our visit, with several rounds of Just Dance! We had to work off all that awesome beer and food somehow!!  


Our first full day began with checking out some of the amazing waterfalls minutes from our campground.

Following the falls was a jaunt to Hood River with Heather as our guide. Lunch at Pfriem (so good),  a walk along the river, and of course a drive along the Fruit Loop. We loaded up on cherries, blueberries, lavender, and veggies. 


Day two we lunched with Kris and Heather, checked out Pittock Mansion (of Wildwood fame for us) and hit the park for a bit with the doggies. 


Day three we relocated our camper to the front of the Alexander residence.  We had lunch at Cascade (House of Sour!!), took in the local street fair, and relaxed watching some Olympics. That evening we splurged on tickets to the Cavalia Odysseo production. It was fantastic! 


As always…can’t wait to go back!!!!
