Fun in Portland, Oregon

http://www.uniquely-portland-oregon.com Barge sailing down the Columbia River, Vancouver, WA-side. Across the river lies Portland, Oregon.

These barges can go clear to Lewiston, Idaho.

The barges have to go through the locks on eight dams: four on the Columbia River and four on the Snake River, totaling 385 miles. As they run through the Gorge in the winter time, winds can sometimes hit 100 mph.

The Barges may contain grain, paper products, solid waste, or petroleum.

What a lovely day it was!
