|Even though it was very rainy, it was still a beautiful drive.|
Along this drive there were many waterfalls the first of which was Latourell Falls. Not letting the rain stop us, we donned our rain gear and got out to view and photograph the falls.

From there it was on to Horsetail Falls, our last falls of the day.

By the time we finished at Horsetail Falls, we were getting pretty wet and decided to stop early in the town of Hood River on the Columbia River. We drove to the end of the Old Columbia River Highway, got back on I-84 and by mid afternoon we were in Hood River and in our hotel room. It was right on the river so we had a great view of the Columbia from our room. After a late lunch, we spent the rest of the afternoon updating this blog and planning tomorrow's itinerary. Even though the weather hasn't been the best, this has been a great trip so far. It is always interesting to see things not in the bright sunshine; the clouds and rain gave a whole new perspective and beauty to areas we traveled through.
