Greetings from the S.S. Legacy! After searching for gold in Alaska, the month of September finds the S.S. Legacy crew plying the waters of the Great River of the West-the Columbia River.
The sun shined, the people clapped, the champagne was drunk, and the S.S. Legacy was christened. You couldn't ask for a more perfect day to celebrate the time-honored tradition of christening a vessel.
Our colleague Ryan Downs, a crew member aboard the 88-guest S.S. Legacy who’s currently working in the office planning historical programs for the vessel’s upcoming journeys, recently returned from a five day canoe trip with the Chinook Tribe on the Columbia River. Here’s his tale.
On our last Rivers of the West trips, we stopped at the confluence of the Palouse and Snake Rivers for a side kayak exploration of the Palouse Canyon.
