Day 26: South Prairie, WA to Troutdale, OR

Started out as a bright sunny day with a few clouds. Got several good looks at Mt. Rainier before we got to the park, then almost none while in the park - - VERY disappointing !! At the visitors center, the parking for trailers was a LONG ways away and getting turned around required driving one of the camp ground loops which werre really conjested and narrow. Drove through Packwood, WA where they were having some kind of a street fest - - took 30 minutes to drive less than a mile. Never got to see Mt Saint Helens. Stopped at Fort Vancouver NM - - a very nicely kept park and interesting - - reminded Gena & I of some of the Army installations we've been on. We found a very nice RV Park in Troutdale, just east of Portland - - the place was spotless! Also about 100yd from a major RR. Woke up to a heavy over cast, but we've turned the corner and are headed home.
