Eighteen Mile Island
Four miles upstream of Hood River lies the only privately owned island in the gorge, and on it is a three story wood frame house from 1969. Lewis and Clark mentioned the island as they explored along the river, stopping to smoke a pipe with new friends not too far away. I see a little boat ramp there on drives east, and am ready for my ride. Are you not as well??
