Beautiful views and vistas abound around every corner. Hikes abound and you can fish, and sightsee. Gorgeous country and I am glad I got to see it!

The Columbia River Gorge is gorgeous! However, due to fire damage, several the the attractions are not accessible. Parking at many of the falls is extremely limited. If you do not get up the gorge early, you will be out of luck. I wouldn't even...More
