Columbia and Snake River Cruises
Cruises on the Columbia and Snake Rivers have long been on our bucket list.
Well, Carol and I are excited to share that we will be enjoying a wine cruise (hopefully earthy Pinot Noirs) with our friends at the American Queen Steamboat Company later this year.
We’ll fly into Spokane, Washington, and the American Queen Steamboat Company (AQSC) will motor us down to Clarkston, Washington, to hop aboard the ship.
And while we know that AQSC can’t promise these views, we’re looking forward to sampling the local cuisine, sipping local wines, and making new friends, all while enjoying eye-popping scenery.
If you remember, Carol and I last sailed with AQSC in December of 2019. Here is a link to our review.
