I thought they wanted me to pose, but apparently Crown Point was the focus.

Snapped this shot just before the Ranger informed new members, Maxine & Gary Stafford, that they were illegally parked.
They got off Scot-free.

We toured passed all the waterfalls.  Beautiful scenery...lots of people.
 In fact, the crossing in front of the Multnomah Falls was quite congested which caused a delay in our progress.
Luckily, there was a good Samaritan who recognized we were a parade of classic cars.
 He held back a throng of pedestrians til our entourage had passed by..... thank you good sir!

We ended our tour at Cascade Locks and lunched at the Bridgeside Restaurant formerly Charburger Restaurant
 It is right next to the Bridge of the Gods.

I was really hungry by the time we got our food.  Couldn't hold the camera steady, just sayin'.

Found someone with a steadier hand.
