Day 79 - Corbett, OR

Today was the final day of the reunion. This is a so-so iPhone photo of the Columbia River just after sunset. There was some nice light on the cliff. This was taken last night when we were down near the lookout roasting marshmellows. The staff had started a really nice fire in the very old outdoor fireplace with hardwood. So there was some really nice coals.

Another shot from last night as we walked back up to the main building. I kind of liked the light coming through the windows. Since we aren't staying on the grounds, we headed back to the Crown Point RV Park at this point.

This morning there was a light drizzle. Kind of appropriate for the end of the reunion. Fortunately, we took the family photo last night. This time, they made an announcement that since everyone had access to the Internet, only one person would take a picture and send it out to everyone. At times, there would be a couple dozen cameras out for pictures.

For lunch, most of the group went to McMenamins - Edgefield after checking out from Menucha. It has become sort of a tradition. After lunch, we went back to Corvallis to pick up the dogs before heading back to the RV park. Tomorrow, we start heading back to Alaska.

Day 77 - Corbett, OR

Just some random pictures from the reunion. "Ukelele Salon" (not sure what that means). Origami. I think the goal was 100-200 cranes for a wedding reception.

Day 76 - Corbett, OR

Today we are at a family reunion. This is the view of the Columbia River from the deck of the swimming pool. You can see Vista House around right-center. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this view. We are camped a short distance away at an RV park. Since we needed a place for the trailer anyway, we opted not to stay "on site" for the reunion. The dogs are at a kennel for the next few days as it has traditionally been really hot during the reunion. It's very pleasant right now.
