Hi to all joining the Aug 2nd program. My 9 year old granddaughter, Chase, and I are looking forward to this trip and especially seeing the wolves. Love Portland, the zoo, the science museum, the ice-skating at the mall, Jet-boat ride . . . so much to do if you get there early. Look forward to meeting everyone.

We are travelling with our 8 year old granddaughter on the July 26, 2015 departure. We live in Western Washington so we are taking the train down Sunday morning to Portland to make it another interesting experience. Anyone else on this departure

Wondered if anyone is familiar with Portland,OR area & can advise on a place to go before this program starts on 6/21. G-daughter interested in Art Museum,OSIM, or World Forestry Ctr. all located close to our hotel at Portland airport. Feedback appreciated.

Mount Hood is really cool. Nice drive up. Hotel (I believe) with shops, restaurant. Can hike further up. Also, Columbia River Gorge is a BEAUTIFUL drive, with many places to stop & hike.
Pam McDonald Jan 28, 2015 at 07:21 PM

Hi Diane, thank you for your comments. I really want to go back myself with an adult friend, but this trip is all about my g-daughter & the animal sanitary, Oregon Zoo & tidal pools, we will visit. Have friends that have been there & say I should go to Japanese Garden & do some hiking, but g-daughter not in to that, she is a Science nut. Looking forward to the scenery. Thanks again, Pam

My husband and I are going with our two granddaughters, who at that time will be 11 and almost 9 years old. We live near Seattle. I think the girls might like to know which other children are doing the class.
