Cruising the Coast - RV Style

We went on a trip with Daniel's brother, Mike, and his family of 8 to the Oregon Coast in an RV. It was GREAT! Here are some of the highlights:

Multnomah Falls


Portland Zoo






We stayed the nights @ Fort Stevens National Park, right by Astoria, and 1 mile away from this Shipwreck Beach





While in Astoria we had to visit the Goonies houses:


We then visited the Astoria Column with over 190 stairs to the top. Here is our view of the huge RV looking like a caterpillar from the top. Daniel drove that RV like a champ! 

Eliza did not like the climb or being so high up!! It was really windy up there too.
 Lewis & Clark State Park @ Fort Clatsop


 Ecola State Park: There was a sign driving up to this look out that said "Trailers not recommended, Narrow road" I must have been the only one who saw it, because we kept driving. Daniel drove the 30 foot bus up the narrow road, driving inches from the edge of the road and almost crushing smaller vehicles. Then came the sign that said "Dip in the Road". There was no way back, couldn't turn around so forward ho! Mike got out and inched us forward. It was well worth it for these 2 pictures of Cannon Beach:

What an adventure! Gorgeous territory (and what a GREAT movie). Bet those cute cousins will never forget their grand roadtrip. Good times and great memories.
