Rollin’ on the River!

Wow! These are the words that came to mind on today’s Urban Excursions EPIC senior outing on our fall Portland Spirit River Cruise up the Columbia! We had scheduled the outing for months and were able to make the trip just as they re-opened 84. Our senior group had such a fun time taking in the beautiful views of the Gorge and despite the fire damage, we celebrated the perseverance and beauty of one of our favorite natural places! Thank you Oregon. . .We LOVE you!
