Best Teen & Pre-Teen Family Trip: Volcanoes & Waterfalls Road Bike Tour with Escape Adventures

Saturday, June 19th, 2021
Escape Adventures bike trip Pacific Northwest family vacations reunions

Snow-capped Mount Hood & snow-capped biking 84-year-old grandmother with grandkids

Escape Adventures Volcanoes & Waterfalls Road Bike Tour

Biking down the mountainside of Washington state’s highest peak – snow-capped Mount Rainer – with their 84-year grandmother, cousins and aunts and uncles was a favorite part of what is now known as my kids’ best vacation ever.

Well-played Escape Adventures and thank you.

The secret to the success of this bike tour company’s 5-day Volcanoes and Waterfalls road bike tour is simple: savoring the sights of the Pacific Northwest while pedaling like mad. It’s the perfect way to keep pre-teens and teens interested in all the stunning nature surrounding them – because they are immersed in it.  Pedaling through mountain tunnels, past snow banks, lush fern-floor forests and enticing cherry orchards in the rain and sun beats scenic driving anytime.

We cycled down Oregon’s tallest peak, Mount Hood; the foothills of Mount St. Helen’s; through Gifford Pinchot National Forest; and along the historic Columbia River Highway in Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and within view of Mount Adams.

One morning, we drove across the Bridge of the Gods and took a biking break to hike up Multnomah Falls, Oregon’s tallest waterfall.

Multnomah Falls, photo by Escape Adventures

The rugged beauty we experienced every single day now feels dreamlike. Words like picturesque and scenic do not adequately describe the diverse grace of the Cascade Mountain range and surroundings.

Escape Adventures three guides provided the biking expertise; the knowledge of the area; the transportation; the meals and snacks; the lodging insight (Skamania Lodge & Whitakers Bunkhouse were ideal settings for our crew) and most importantly- the vigor and charisma that comes from doing a job they so clearly love.

Apres-bike with our guides in the Adirondack-chair bedecked lawn of Skamania Lodge (within the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area).

Free Juneteenth 2021 celebrations @ Telfair Museums, Savannah

Monday, June 7th, 2021

free juneteenth savannah events telfair jepson summer kids 2021

Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center in Savannah free to locals June 12-13; free libation ceremony & virtual Juneteenth lecture

Telfair Museums will mark Juneteenth 2021 with free admission to the Jepson Center, a free libation ceremony, and a free virtual lecture.

From 10AM-5PM Saturday and Sunday, June 12 and 13, Savannah and Chatham County residents will receive free admission to the Jepson Center in partnership with the City of Savannah.

The free weekend features a libation ceremony at noon Sat. June 12 on the front steps of the museum led by local historians Vaughnette Goode-Walker and Jamal Toure.

Activity kits focusing on the Black experience and themes related to current exhibitions, including works by Savannah artist Sauda Mitchell, also will be distributed.

Juneteenth celebrates the beginning of the emancipation of enslaved Americans on June 19, 1865, by order of Union General Gordon Granger in Texas.

At 6PM Tues. June 15, Telfair will host its annual Juneteenth lecture with a virtual appearance by historian and author Anthony Cohen, whose book “Patrick & Me” chronicles his journey as a fourth-generation descendant of an enslaved man who escaped to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Drawing from an 1856 interview with his forbearer, Cohen carefully reconstructs the amazing life story of Patrick Sneed—a slave of African, Jewish, Irish, and Cherokee heritage—who fled from bondage in Savannah and later went on to fight in the Civil War. You can register for the free Zoom lecture at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rMobXJFBRsWVjCwRljswxw.

Telfair recently expanded its regular days and hours as it continues to pare back limitations enforced during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. All three of Telfair’s sites—the Jepson Center, the Telfair Academy, and the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters—now are open from 10AM-5PM on Tuesdays, in addition to Thursdays through Mondays. The museum remains closed on Wednesdays.
