To the editor:
I am a guest on the American Empress - docked in “The Dalles” today.
What a beautiful town! I visited Columbia Gorge Discovery Museum, The Original Courthouse, Fort Dalles Museum, took a carriage ride for one hour around downtown and then walked for around 90 minutes. All your shop keepers were polite, informed and super friendly. I had coffee at a lovely café downtown, again with very welcoming, friendly locals. As one of the last frontier towns in the USA, consider yourselves proud!
I work in travel and will be taking back fantastic memories of this most beautiful, historic place! Thank you one and all!
