The Battelle Staff Association arranged for a group rate on the Columbia Gorge. Barb and I took Xenia and went on a short cruise on a sternwheeler. We took a bunch of photos the more interesting of ours are here. Xenia took a bunch too. We had a nice time. I loved hearing about the history and geology of the area. It was a long drive for us but by driving along the more scenic north side of the Columbia river on the way back made the drive enjoyable as well.
