Multnomah Falls Pt. 2

Here is a picture of our garden. Tanner and Jacques are adding dirt to the potatoes. We are growing peas, brocoli, basil, radishes, potatoes, tomatoes and a pathetic looking spinach. There were several plants in the center that were victim to slug snacks!!! We will probably fill the center in with starts later.
We hiked to the top of Multnomah Falls on Friday.

The top of the falls on the landing. The picture below is looking off the landing down the mountain.

It was over a mile hike to the top with 11 switch backs and we rose a total of 700 ft.!
The top of the falls looking down. You can see the cars in the parking lot on the right side of the picture.

A visit to the Maritime Museum helped us learn about the area and how dangerous this part of the water is nicknamed the Graveyard of the Pacific!

We climbed this towering column to get a great view over Astoria. It was covered with murals depicting the Lewis and Clark expedition and overlooks the mouth of the Columbia river

Tanner poses in front of the school filmed in "Kindergarten Cop" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Here is one of the houses where they filmed for "The Goonies". This was Mikey's house and one of the other ones next to it was Data's house.

B-day trip to the coast

A suspicious group of characters!!!

For my birthday we traveled to the coast. We stopped at Cannon Beach, Seaside, Long Beach (Washington), then Astoria (back in Oregon).

The rocks where they filmed a scene from "The Goonies".

Jacques at the coast on Cannon Beach.

May Pole

Jacques didn't join in the may pole fun. Instead he played with all the toys around!

We took Jacques to this May Day celebration at a preschool where children wore flowers in their hair and danced around a may pole.

Friday Morning Hike

We took a wrong turn and stumbled across this historic, scenic viewpoint
Look closely and you'll see Tanner and Jacques walking on the trail behind the waterfall.We took a long hike on Friday and saw 3 waterfalls including horse tail falls pictured above.
