Ainsworth State Park - Oct 1-14, 2015

We found this jewel of a park just outside of Portland in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, near Cascade Locks.  While at the campground, we got to spend more time with our grandson Myles.  We watched him and Nala (their Alaskan Husky) while Jessica & Erik traveled to NYC to attend a wedding.  We all had fun!

Our campsite was pretty nice.

We all went on a morning walk in the forest

Linda met up with Jill - one of her Instagram Friends

We took a day trip to Mount Saint Helens

We stayed at McMenamins Edgefield for our Birthday(s).  It's a 74 acre poor house/farm (1911) that has been converted into a resort of sorts.  If you're ever in the area, it's well worth visiting

Enjoying a roaring campfire outside the The Little Red Shed - It's one of the many things to do at McMenamins Edgefield.  They have several restaurants & pubs, a brewery, winery, distillery, spa & soaking pool, gardens, movie theater and hotel rooms.  It's a fun destination.

Great post Bruce! Looks like both of you had a fantastic Birthday! Love the shot of the two of you. :-)
I think that McMenamins in Troutdale will always be my favorite, but we're looking forward to trying out the newly opened McMenamins Anderson School just a short drive from home. I hear they have a bar called "The Principal's Office," :-) Enjoy your time in PT
