Oregon – Columbia River Gorge

Just west of Portland, Oregon is an area called the Columbia River Gorge.  The Columbia River runs across most of the northern part of the state (including through Portland).  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbia_River_Gorge)

The Gorge is magnificent, with an old scenic drive that takes the traveler past magnificent waterfalls and nature.

I visited this area in 1997 on vacation… and fell in love with Oregon here.  A month later, I moved to the Portland Metropolitan area.

This trip, I drove east of Hood River for about 10 miles and looked out at the Gorge.  It was a cloudy, overcast, November day (as I understand many are in that area).
