Life is full of choices, a three-hour tour (you know what happened to them) or a day tour. you get to choose your drive! Will you enjoy the regularly scheduled Arrive & Drive or will you take the day tour to Skamaina Lodge for the Oregon Region’s tribute Commemorating 50 Years of the Porsche 911?
Oregon Region will have over 100 Porsches on display for our viewing pleasure and enjoyment, so why not join the fun?
We’ll leave Bend at from the same old Starbucks and wave “so long” to those going on the A & D. We’ll go north (Porsche roads) cross the river (Columbia) and arrive at the Skamaina Lodge in time for lunch. There we’ll continue enjoying the cars, the people and the day. When we decide it’s time to head south we will include a dinner stop along the way. We’ll be back in Bend in time for my bedtime!
Please email me if you are joining us for the Skamania Lodge tour or have questions, thanks.
What’s Skamania Lodge? A magnificent mountain resort nestled on 175 wooded acres, located in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. In 1986, Congress passed an act that created the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. This scenic area was created to protect natural, scenic and cultural resources and to stimulate the economy of the Gorge region. The mission statement within the act called for a lodge and meeting center to be built - Skamania Lodge. Construction began July 16, 1991. The Lodge opened its doors on February 26, 1993.
