Being half Finnish in my heritage I was intrigued to find out that this section in Astoria was settled by the Finnish and is known as Uniontown or Finntown. I found this information on the net so hopefully the tour guide was correct. Thanks for visiting. Sharon

Hi Majid. It was an accident that the #1600. The day was very overcast and I wanted to go to 400 and went the wrong way on the camera. I did it to quite a few and wasn't very happy with myself. I guess someday I will figure it out. Thanks for the comment. Best to you my friend. Sharon

Hi Finn, David Alex and Kostas. Thank you to all for your great comments. I have hundreds of photos from my cruise. Now I just have to go through them and pick some out. The North West was just beautiful and green. Thanks again, Sharon
