JUNE 25 , 2014

Today was a beautiful drive along winding roads with lots of wild flowers.  We wanted to stop in Cathlamet, Wa. to see the 1895 Pioneer Church built into a rock outcropping that overlooks the village, but couldn't see any place to stop.  But we did see some neat things.

We continued on to Grays River to see the Covered Bridge.  We stopped at a vacant cafe parking lot and unhooked to go down to see the 1905 Covered Bridge with the 158-foot span and is considered the oldest remaining covered bridge in the northwest, and the only one of its kind in the state of Washington. To our surprise it was very plain.

The drive was just beautiful.  We followed the Columbia River all the way. We went from Oregon to Washington and back to Oregon.

Our next stop was the "Dismal Hitch", where Lewis & Clark were held up  by storms.

And just before we arrived at the RV Park we had to cross the 4.1 mile "Astoria Megler Bridge".  In the middle of the bridge we entered the state Oregon.

We got in to the next RV park around 1:00 pm and just enjoyed the afternoon.

The afternoon was free to just relax and enjoy the day.
