Trip to Oregon

My road trip to Oregon in August 2017. This trip went to Prineville to see the total solar eclipse. After that I drove to Portland, via the Columbia Gorge. I spent a day in Portland then drove to Albany. After spending time in Albany chasing trains with Vic Neves, I drove home.

Columbia River Gorge, OR - August 22, 2017, Tuesday
I spent Monday night camping in Memaloose State Park Campground near Mosier, Oregon in the Columbia River Gorge. Tuesday I spent the day doing some super mellow foaming on the UP side of the Columbia River Gorge. This was a semi rest day as I spent the day reading and relaxing between trains. One of my favorite ways to railfan! Unknown to me then, is that later in this summer a lot of the area I was photographing in would burn. That evening I went to a friend's house in Portland.
