Friday July 27, we drove to Stevenson, WA in the Columbia Gorge for the wedding of our friends Drew Coulton & Nichole Alhadeff. On the way there we took a route around Mt. Hood we had never taken before. It was a beautiful drive with lots of great views of the mountain.
We stayed at the same hotel as a lot of our friends from Antarctica, so we all convoyed to the wedding site. Here are Bill, Pete, Kim, Amy, Bija, Rebecca, Elizabeth & Kelly.
