Boarding The Buses In Portland, Oregon

We were bused from Portland to the Sternwheeler located at the Cascade Locks in Oregon. To preserve Covid-19 Social Distancing, they only loaded about 15 to 20 people in each bus. Thus it took 3 buses to take everyone to the sternwheeler. An additional bus from a private tour agency was already at the Cascade Locks pier when we got there.
