August 4, 2007 - Flight up the Columbia River, Part 1

Gregg found out the weather was good up the river so we went flying that way.  The sun was directly west so there is a lot of glare in the photos.  It was also a bit more turbulent ride than the ones in June.

A couple photos of Astoria looking east:

Views as we went up the Columbia River:

The bridge from Cathlamet, WA to the island.  From Oregon you take a ferry from Westport to get to the island.

The mill on the Oregon side close to Westport:
