Sternwheeler – Cascade Locks

6 Apr

ImageAwhile back Carolyn, one of my painting buddies gave me a tour up the Columbia Gorge from Cascade Locks down to Bonneville Damn and then back up towards the wind surfers @Hood River.  I can’t show you any wind surfers as there was absolutely no wind.  After we disembarked, it was still so pleasant of an evening and the sun on the craft…….. had to do a quick little watercolor sketch. Carolyn did a small painting too!  This is the area on the Columbia where the Native Americans have treaty rights to fish year round from the banks with dip nets.  Their platforms for fishing are very unsubstantial, scary even.
