PORTLAND, Ore. — Rod On The Road took a trip to Sauvie Island and enjoyed a day in the country, just a few miles outside of Portland.
The island is the largest along the Columbia River and at more than 13 miles long is one of the largest river islands in the country.
My day began on a paddle board on the water of the Multnomah Channel. Many people enjoy the waters, including the seemingly always busy beaches along the Columbia when the summer season arrives.
Driving the island takes one past a handful of farms that attract locals to pick their own fresh produce.
Sauvie Island is a beautiful country retreat and my day was filled with fun!
