Rain or shine, the Gorge is full of opportunities for fun and adventure – whether you want to hike to a waterfall, ski Mt. Hood, bike Post Canyon, pick cherries or eat huckleberry ice cream. Pick up the new Kidding Around the Gorge and you’ll know where to go.

Authors Ruth Berkowitz and Lisa Kosglow provide the inside scoop of more than 200 things to to do with your kids, from toddlers to teenagers. Comprised of 18 Chapters with motivating titles like Monkeying Around the Playground, Swimming Spots for Mermaids and Manatees, Zebras, Alpacas and Sturgeon and Extreme Sports. “Grab it and Go! We use this book all the time” says Lisa Rust, teacher, mother and climber.

The first two editions were good, but this third edition is fantastic. Not only is the new book in full color, but it also contains years of exploration and wisdom from many parents, and has jaw-dropping photographs.

A writer, lawyer and mediator, Ruth’s been kidding around the Gorge since 2001. While hiking to see the petroglyphs, she met Lisa Kosglow, mom of a five-year old, Olympic snowboarder, and founder of Let’s Get Out, a jammed packed adventure camp based in the Gorge. The two are a great team and give the inside scoop of what to do with your kids.

Self published locally with help from the Columbia Gorge Press, Kidding Around the Gorge will be available in early July, 2015. ISBN No. 978-0-692-44094-0
