Columbia Gorge Waterfalls and Mt. Hood Tour - Full Day
"Our tour guide TJ makes up 90% of this great experience, though the scenes are just as wonderful. You'll know you're in good hands as you meet him. I believe I'll still enjoy the journey even if he just took us to the middle of nowhere haha. Just one piece of friendly suggestion: if Mt. Hood is (again) covered in clouds and invisible, just walk a little, take some pictures, and the clouds might go away to reveal Mt. Hood. We spent most of our time inside the lodge and missed that scene. When we went out, the clouds just went back again. But then again, thanks to TJ, we did have an interesting tour inside the lodge too."..."
