For Christmas Logan had  given Jim and I a gift card to Skamania Lodge.  Finding a weekend when nothing was going on was a bit of a challenge the first half of the year.  Now that we are emtpy nesters it is not quite as difficult so we grabbed a weekend in September and headed over the river.

 We enjoyed just hanging out around the hotel Friday night and taking in the beautiful scenery.  We sat out on the back patio and read for quite a while.

 We enjoyed a nice dinner out on the patio too.
 They have a fun fire pit at night and there was a full moon.
 The next morning there was an amazing sunrise thanks to all the smoke in the air from the fires.
 We enjoyed breakfast first - Jim had some fresh squeeze OJ with huckleberries.

 We then headed out to do some hiking along the Lewis River.  There were lots of amazing waterfalls.  It was hot but a bit cooler near the water.

 Some people had hiked in with some pack goats!  I've never seen a pack goat before.

It was a beautiful, hot fall day and we had a great time.  It was fun to have a little escape!  Thanks Logan.
