Stub Stewart SP and Heading to the Gorge

Tuesday morning it was time to move. We have really enjoyed this state campground we have been at. We drove around to see the rest of it. There are five sections..2 full hookup sections, 1 cabin section, day use area,  and a horse camp..

Day Use Area…

Around Stub Stewart State Park, Or 002 Around Stub Stewart State Park, Or 003

Lots of trails but rather hilly… Around Stub Stewart State Park, Or 019

  Wild flowers everywhere…

Around Stub Stewart State Park, Or 008

Horse Camp.. Around Stub Stewart State Park, Or 012 Around Stub Stewart State Park, Or 016 

We would definately return here again, if we are in the area.  But for now, time to move on…to the Columbia River Gorge..

Driving through Portland…

Drive to Columbia River Gorge, Or 002

Once at the gorge… It was breathtaking, however hazy, and pictures taken through the windshield not so clear…

Drive to Columbia River Gorge, Or 039

Drive to Columbia River Gorge, Or 027 Drive to Columbia River Gorge, Or 029 Drive to Columbia River Gorge, Or 031 

The drive was a beautiful one… We arrived at the Memaloose State Park, which is directly on the Columbia River.  Easy access for our touring the area.. More on that tomorrow!

As former Volunteers at Stub, we appreciated the write up. Hope you also got to see/use the Mt. Bike trails and the "Golf Course" disk style. Mamaloos is also unique. We travel to the NW every year for about four months, volunteering in these great parks.
