Northwest '08 Trip 1 - Move on to Northwest '08 Trip 2

September 2008 found us off for two weeks with Chris and Bonnie for our third vacation to the Pacific Northwest. After a night in Seattle, we drove to North Cascades National Park where we relaxed for two days at the Freestone Inn Ranch. Our next stop was the Grand Coulee Dam, the largest concrete structure in the U.S., where we toured the museum and the power plant inside the dam. After a night in Coeur d'Alene ID, it was on to Farmington WA where we stayed with brother Chuck and Kerma for three days. Cousin Melissa, husband Kevin and their 2 children came up from Boise for an overnight visit. Some of Kerma's family (of the Nez Perce tribe) also visited for a day. We relaxed and ate well at Chuck's, a diet of salmon and buffalo burgers! Finally we moved on down the Columbia River and stayed for a night at the Bonneville Hot Springs Resort, where we made good use of their soothing facilities! The next morning, we hiked Mt. Hood and the beautiful Multnomah waterfalls. Then it was on to the splendid northern coast of Oregon for four days at a rental house right on the ocean in quaint Cannon Beach. We relaxed, took walks and of course I took lots of photos! Our last day found us hiking majestic Mt. Rainier before returning to Seattle for our flight home. Needless to say, we had a great vacation!
