There are two routes in the Ape Cave. We explored the shorter and easier Lower Cave. The upper cave is longer and more difficult.

The Ape Cave is spooky and would be perfect for a Hollywood movie. You expect to run into The Goonies down there.

The end of the Lower Cave tapers down to a crawl space. That's as far as we went before turning around.

From the Ape Cave we drove to our camp ground. Along the way we passed the view point at Cape Horn. The Columbia River Gorge is an incredibly beautiful part of the Pacific Northwest.

Dinner was tacos; always a good option for car camping with a big group. It's easy, and since everything is self-serve you can accommodate everyone's food preferences.

Once everyone had a chance to make s'mores it was time to tell ghost stories.
