The Vista House at Crown Point was an easy to reach viewpoint off Rt 30, but of course tour busses found it easy too. The point offered majestic views of the Columbia River Gorge as the river wound its way from the mountains to the...More

So the vista house has some gorgeous views. It's a perfectly named attraction. BUT There is no way around it-the place is small, doesn't take much to make it too crowded and there are other places nearby that offer comparable views...in fact there is a...More
