2020-08-26 Fort Stevens State Park, Oregon

What is the #LadyJCoastToCoast journey?  It was an 8 week trek cross country, literally from coast to coast, crossing 23 state lines before we made it back to the Portland, Oregon area.  I will post our rides from wonderful horse camps, along with some simple, everyday touristy stuff, as I have time and effort.  This one is the first in many to come!  (They will be dated as per the time we were there.)

One of the nation’s largest public campgrounds, Fort Stevens marks the site of a military installation once used to guard the mouth of the Columbia River. The fort saw service for 84 years, from the Civil War to World War II.

Today, Fort Stevens is a 4,300-acre park offering a variety of recreation adventures, including camping, beach-combing, freshwater lake swimming, trails, wildlife viewing and a historic shipwreck.

What a wonderful, scenic place to begin our journey to drive, camp and ride this amazing country in our #LadyJCoastToCoast journey.  The day was absolutely gorgeous, and I was blessed to get to spend the day with not only my three children in one place (a rare occasion!), but also in an equestrian activity.  Of sorts.

My son, Garrin Hertel, of Rockabilly Space Force and his gorgeous wife Dena joined my photographer daughter, Lauren McGinty of Ropin The Moment Photography to shoot photos, videos and drone images to make a music video.  What do you think?

 

Here are some great stills, and it’s possible I might have a few more at a later time.

      Thanks Mary! I hope I can offer avenues of education and entertainment while “bragging” about being out on the trails with my daughter. LOL!
