Our next stop was Woodland, Washington, about 20 miles north of Portland. We drove about two miles west of I-5 through farmlands with mountains to the east to the RV park.
On the days that we stayed "home," we would make frequent checks to see if we could catch views of the activity. Almost daily, small boats took these positions in the river, presumably for personal fishing.
Towboats push the barges up through navigation locks on Bonneville and beyond. The output from the smokestacks of factories on the opposite shore produced an active background for the photos of these towboats.
