I’ve been closed down, sequestered with my wife, for over a year because of the threat of a dread disease, Covid-19. Now, I feel free. I was vaccinated twice, late January and late February. My wife received her first shot at the beginning of April and her second in late April. So, I hit the road. This was a great opportunity to see some fascinating parts of Washington and Oregon. For my celebratory first trip in far too long, I covered a rough triangle in central and southern Washington and Oregon along the mighty Columbia.
