From Hood to Coast

After a week boondocking near Mt. Hood, we came off the mountain and began the move towards our annual kayaking/geocaching event at Tugman State Park near Coos Bay.

But first…….

A couple of nights in the Columbia Gorge, a quick visit in Portland and a few days on the coast at Newport.

First up, two nights at Ainsworth State Park (one of our favorite places). It was a short stay where we use our full hookup site to clean up and recharge. We managed an out and back hike to Angel’s Rest, a few geocaches and an awesome breakfast at Multnomah Falls Lodge.

Finished the week off with two nights at South Beach State Park in Newport on the coast. Elliot was glad to sleep out in the tent again!
