This week, we take you to explore Ape Cave just south of Mt. St. Helens. Ape Cave was formed over 2000 years ago when a rare lava flow pulsed through the tunnel for several months creating a deep and wide tube. When the eruption finally came to an end, it left spectacular 13,042 foot long lava tube – the third longest in North America.
On a lot of our adventures, we stop off at some random spot that I spotted on a map. I wonder what the view is like from there… or …it would be cool to say I stood there. This was one of those trips. What would it be like to stand on the very northwest corner of Oregon?
This week, we take you to explore the Lava Canyon Suspension Bridge near Cougar, WA. Located 75 miles away from Portland, Lava Canyon and Ape Cave are often hiked together for a family friendly day trip.
This week, we take you on a relaxing drive and enjoy the beautiful views crossing the four mile Astoria-Megler Bridge across the Columbia River.
This week, we take you to explore the activities found at the Columbia River Maritime Museum. The museum houses a large number of exhibits featuring a 3D theatre, historical ships, the history of ships and fishing on the Columbia River, stories of storms, shipwrecks, the Coast Guard, and bar pilots on the Columbia River Bar.
This week, we take you on a relaxing drive of the North Oregon Coast at sunset.
This week, we take you on a 125 foot climb to the top of the Astoria Column with commanding views of the Astoria, the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean.
