We continued inland through the Diamond Lake and Bend towards Mt. Hood, a legendary volcano of Oregon and then to Portland, the state's capital. Just a short trip from the neighbouring Washington state and a quick side trip the cousin volcano Mt. Ranier, we head to Seattle.
After unsuccessful attempt to cross the Canadian Borders due to COVID we regroup in the Deception Pass state park for a few days, coming out with a replacement plan - and soon we head into inland Washington, through North Cascades National Park inlands to Coulee City, Spokane, the Idaho Panhandle and right into the western Montana.
