Today we decided to head to Astoria since we will miss this portion of our trip when we head to Portland. We stopped at the Peter Iredale Shipwreck for what I thought would be a great photo op. It was however infested with tourist the way rats infest a garbage pile. I dont know why some people think it acceptable to climb relics when it they know its an attraction for others. Anyway, I took the obligatory shot and left disappointed. Next we went to the Astoria Column which is a scenic overlook of the city and Columbia River. You could climb the column via a spiral staircase and get a birds eye view which I did but it was quite crowded at the top.
We went to lunch at the Bridgewater Bistro where I took the shot above before heading to the Louis and Clark National Park where we took a short hike where our forefathers once discovered the West. Tonight its dinner at the Newman 988 and then back to Portland for the frig fix.
