Cave B and Terrace Camping at The Gorge

Thursday we drove from Blackwell Island in Coeur d’Alene to George/Quincy Washington to The Gorge Amphitheater. Nine months earlier we had purchased tickets to see Arcade Fire at The Gorge. We’d never been to the Gorge before but heard they had a new camping area where we could bring our R-Pod so we booked the Terrace Campground.

We were among the first to arrive in the late afternoon. We set up our camp and relaxed to vistas and sunset across Columbia River.

The next morning we were treated to hot coffee, fresh doughnuts, super clean toilets and hot showers with no lines. Terrace Camping is great!

We headed over to Cave B Winery for a wine tasting and ended up joining their wine club. I definitely look forward to receiving some shipments from them in the Fall. We enjoyed all their wines but bought a few bottles of Rosé, Caveman Red, and a nice bottle of Syrah we’ll save for a special occasion or an adequate excuse to open.

After tasting we walked over to Cave B Inn at Sagecliffe to have lunch at Tendrils. The views from the outdoor terrace were stunning, matched by the food and wine.

We returned to our campsite in the early afternoon and listened to Arcade Fire sound check as we awaited the start of the show. “Here Comes the Night Time“…
