Calif Coast 2007
Diary of Linda, Meghan, and Roger's trip to California Coast, August 2007



Day 42 summer trip. I got up early walked Meghan and made cheese omelets breakfast for Linda. We left Mayhill about 11:00 a.m. heading southwest along the Columbia River and through the beautiful Columbia Gorge. We stopped at a small NFS campground called Herman Creek for a rest and a hike with Meghan. The trail headed abruptly up 800’ for a mile to the top edge of the gorge and teed in with the Pacific Crest Trail. It was a short hike but strenuous, very beautiful with a view of the river at the top. The north exposure of this slope rarely saw sun, hence lots of moss and ferns. We continued on, stopping at Troutdale to buy something at Camping World. Arrived in Albany about 4:00 p.m. and checked into the Blue Ox RV Park. This park had very nice facilities including good wifi, so we decided to stay here 2 nights.
