Corbett, Oregon on the Columbia River Historic Highway

Aloha Everyone

The small town of Corbett is located between the Sandy River and Crown Point on the Columbia River Historic Highway, Interstate 84. This is at the mouth of the scenic Columbia River Gorge. We are staying 2 nights at the Crown Point RV Park. After checking in, we drove to Portland Women's Forum, a viewpoint on the promontory that provides unobstructed views of the Columbia River Gorge.

Marker for the Portland Women's Forum.

If you look closely, white dots on the river are actually sailboards.

Vista House was the second scenic stop this afternoon. The weather is still sunny and very pleasant at 73 degrees Fahrenheit. However outside is extremely windy and I have difficulty opening Honu's door.

A charming country store is within an easy walking distance. However J.J. and I purchased enough provisions from Trader Joe's to prepare meals for the next couple of days.

J.J. and I love meeting people on our travels. This morning while I was practicing yoga asanas, I met Keri from Portland. Champoeg RV ground was family friendly. Each loop had about 6 RV parking stalls surrounding a spacious grassy field,  perfect for children to run around while adults socialized.

Here is Keri with her pet, Ollie.
