My View from the July/August 2016 Issue

Here we go, summer is in full swing. It’s time for camping, fishing, bike riding, kayaking, hiking and all other types of outdoor activities.
 
I was lucky enough to start my summer off at Barton Park in Boring, Oregon where a portion of my family got together to camp, tell tall tales around the campfire and reconnect.

As if that wasn’t fun enough I recently welcomed a new grandbaby into the family. Summer is definitely off to a great start in my world.
 
There are some great businesses and happenings to read about in this issue of The Gorge Business News.
 
Below this letter are a couple of photos and an ad for the WAAAM Air and Auto Museum in Hood River. If you are traveling through on I-84 in the future, be sure to stop in and see all they have. It is absolutely one of the greatest museums I have had the pleasure of visiting.
 
During my travels this month I also stopped in at Timberlake Campground, which is just a short distance from Hood River on the Washington side of the Columbia River. This is a fabulous campground. If you like lush green brush, walking trails and the sounds of nature, this is the campground for you. Learn more about it on page 12.
 
If you’d rather spend the night with a few more amenities be sure to stop in at the brand new Hampton Inn in Hood River. With views of the Columbia River this will be a great stop along the way when you need a place to stay. Information can be found on page 5.
 
Be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up on all my latest travel photos. A few from the past few weeks are to the right.
 
Thank you so much for taking the time to pick up The Gorge Business News. Your readership is appreciated, and as always I welcome comments and suggestions.
 
Have a wonderful summer and until next time…..Carpe diem (Seize the Day)
