Columbia River Valley views

by | Oct 30, 2008 | Travel

After a filling breakfast at Heidi’s, we headed east out of Portland along the very scenic Historic Columbia River Highway for some beautiful views of the Columbia River Valley.

Washington state is on the left and Oregon is on the right. That tiny building on the right is the Vista House at Crown Point. A beautiful lookout point with stained glass windows and a wrap around balcony for 360 degree views.

This is also the place where Eric shot this panorama from…

Just a short ways further down the highway are a bunch of stunningly tall waterfalls, some you can see right from your car… more photos coming soon!
