Just a casual hike..

Today’s love letter to the Gorge goes out to Cascade Locks, Oregon.

When we think of Cascade Locks, we think of humbling old-growth forests, a history of engineering feats, and a tough-as-nails community of some of the sweetest people ever! From a town that features the iconic Bridge of the Gods, a burgeoning powerhouse of craft beer, and the centuries-old tradition of Native fishing on the Columbia: 10/10 would recommend Cascade Locks. To use GOrge Pass to explore this special place in the heart of the Gorge, check out the route brochure in our bio. ⠀

As a transit network that spans 2 states and a whole lot of miles, GOrge Pass has a lot of ground to cover, but this month, we’ll continue to highlight some of our favorite features of Cascade Locks. Come along for the ride!⠀

The "Grand Romance" sternwheeler anchored in the Napa River has seen better days.

Had the pleasure of tattooing this riverboat on Bryan today! Tough spot, but he sat like a champ!

And a sternwheeler dinner cruise, where we learned a lot of Lewis & Clark history that apparently took place on that river and had a statue of Sacagawea in front

Two shots of the American Queen rounding Moccasin Bend, which is home to both a mental hospital and a national archeological site.

American Queen has cleared the P.R. Olgiati Bridge that carries US 27 across the Tennessee River and heads on downriver.

Note the pilot house has been raised back to its proper position. The Southern Belle can be seen on the left. #americanqueensteamboatcompany #americanqueen #americanqueenvoyages #steamboat #riverboat #olgiatibridge #sternwheeler #tennesseeriver #chattanoogariverboat #southernbelleriverboat @americanqueenvoyages @noogariverboats

Alright, which one of you clowns hid the pilot house?

With both stacks down and the last shore lines being released, the captain and pilot have made their way onto the port bridge wing and allowed the pilot house, which sits on what is essentially a giant scissor lift, to be retracted into the superstructure for clearing bridges. #americanqueen #steamboat #americanqueensteamboatcompany #americanqueenvoyages #riverboat #sternwheeler #tennesseeriver @americanqueenvoyages

The port side stack comes down as crews begin to release the ropes holding American Queen to the dock in Chattanooga.

#americanqueen #americanqueensteamboatcompany #americanqueenvoyages #steamboat #riverboat #sternwheeler #tennesseeriver @americanqueenvoyages

With an amazing sunrise for a backdrop, and with most on shore preparations finished, American Queen’s departure is made obviously imminent as the first stack is lowered for bridge clearance reasons.

The sun is just beginning to break through as the crew from American Queen make the final preparations to begin their 9 day cruise to Memphis.

While in reality moving quite slowly so as to bring the historic steam engines up to proper

operating temperature, this timed exposure gives the illusion that the American Queen’s sternwheel is running at warp speed. #americanqueen #americanqueensteamboatcompany #americanqueenvoyages #steamboat #riverboat #sternwheeler #nightphotography #timedexposure @americanqueenvoyages

Here we have an early morning exposure of the American Queen docked at Ross’s Landing in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

#americanqueen #americanqueensteamboatcompany #americanqueenvoyages #steamboat #riveeboat #sternwheeler #nightphotography @americanqueenvoyages

The steamer American Queen docked in downtown Chattanooga.

At 418 feet long, 89 feet wide and 110 feet high, she is the largest inland waterways riverboat to be constructed. Amazingly, she only draws 8.5 feet of water. She was christened in June, 1995. #americanqueensteamboat #americanqueensteamboatcompany #americanqueenvoyages #steamboat #riverboat #sternwheeler #tennesseeriver

Day 4 @thegorge in #cascadelocks was another day of firsts, first time paddling an OC2 and

first time surfing a wave behind the historic #sternwheeler 💪 I do not have words to describe how nervous, scared and excited I was during this experience 😬 I tried to come up with every excuse possible to not do this trip but @val_stepanchuk continued to push me to try new things 🙌 Honestly anyone, any age, any illness can come here and paddle with the @gorgecanoeclub 💙 On top of being the wind sports capital of the Continental US, the citizens of this magical place are some of the most kind, loving and funny folks I have ever met 🙌

POLING UP THE RIVER BENUE


Langa Langa, a political officer who served in Nigeria during the Colonial days left England on Boxing Day in 1908, with his dog named "Peggy," to travel to Northern Nigeria. He met another officer who was also going to Northern Nigeria on his journey down to Nigeria.

He reached Forcados on the 12th of January. At Forcados, they were taken by boats to the river stern-wheeler at Burutu after which he arrived at lokoja where he got his orders to proceed to Bauchi.

He set forth on the Benue in the Quail, picture above, which was poled by 8 men and followed by two wooden canoes containing their loads.
