“All about the proximity to Hood River...”

"Have you been here before?" the campground host was old, and jolly. His dog pulled at his leash to nearly tumble the old man over, and this seemed to be a perpetual happening for the poor guy.

I said no.

"Well, here's how it works, these spots up here, you get the highway," which was constantly busy, all night long, every day. "And those spots down there," the ones we wanted to stay in, "you get the train."

"I don't mind a train," I told him.

He looked at me like I didn't really understand what he meant by "train".

So we went about our lives, setup camp, tossed around a frisbee, annoyed the neighbors with our loud skateboard wheels and then...wow, the train was really, really close. And super loud.

Still, I don't mind a train, and I sleep really soundly.

"Isn't this park stunning?" another camper mentioned during some small talk.

I looked around again, in case I'd missed something. The Columbia River is very nearby. But it's basically a reservoir with some massive (though definitely beautiful) cliffs surrounding. We'd hiked a mile long trail that follows the highway to a waterfall, which was also impressive enough.

"Yeah," the other camper continues, "this is the most breathtaking place I've ever been."

All I could think was "You should go more places."

“Great park, but I'd look elsewhere next time because of its proximity to the train!”

This park is in a great location for hiking, water activities, its shaded, the spots are nice, but I dropped my coffee when I heard the train go by -- it sounded like it was right out our back window, which it was.
