The 'Other' Vancouver
|Historic Fort Vancouver blockhouse|
Well, that's for sure! We took in one of those 'recreational opportunities' and enjoyed the Discover History Loop Trail. We chose to do the short loop, which was a lovely, relaxing 2.5 mile walk in beautiful Vancouver, along the Columbia River and through the prairie landscape that Fort Vancouver calls home. Along the way we experienced the feel of downtown, saw families enjoying the fun of a city water park, pondered historic monuments, meandered over and under the freeways, counted fighter jets taking off from the nearby airport, learned about native peoples and pioneers at the museum, and got a little sweaty, to be honest!
A summer day exploring with good friends...who could ask for more?
