On the last two R.V. campouts the Sundowners first visited and toured the Chinese Underground and the Indian Culture Center in Pendleton, Ore. They stayed at the Wild Horse Casino. Several rigs then went on to Hepner where Delbert Brashers donated an old clock to their museum that was originally from an old tavern in that area. They went on to Plymouth and toured the Columbia Crest Winery. The September outing found them at Beacon Rock Youth Camp. There were 13 rigs at this event with four being from the Twin City Rovers. They all enjoyed good weather, grilled hamburgers and home made ice cream. (What's the mystery of the wounded flamingo, Mary?)
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St. and

Lyle Transportation -- Author unknown: "In 1853 one of the first settlers into Klickitat County were Erastus and Mary Joselyn. It took them three weeks from Portland inland to The Dalles, by steamer, as well as a sail barge and the portage railroad around the Cascade Rapids. This is typical of the means by which the early settlers came inland by the way of the Columbia River."
