The boat will be taken tlirougn tne jjocks, a very interesting opera
tion, during which the Falls may be seen from the west side. A
landing will be made at Canemah, on the east side of the river,
whpre, if bound south, the traveler can board the train and continue
his journey. Otherwise a delightful walk of a mile along the river
bank brings him to Oregon City, where he can spend an hour at the
Falls and be in Portland again at ten A. M. ; One not caring to pass
through the Locks can take the train at half-past seven to Oregon
City and return as before.
A trip that no tourist should omit to make is to The Dalles by
water. The scenery

River is admitted to
be unexcelled by
that of any naviga

world; and the best
of it lies between
Portland and The
Dalles. The trip
can be made by rail
one way and water
the other. Trains
