The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, bridges the border of Oregon and Washington east of Portland and Vancouver, and reaches from wet western forests to the dry high-desert plateaus at the Deschutes River.
The towering cliffs, cascading waterfalls, abundant wildflowers and panoramic vistas of the magnificent Columbia River Gorge brings millions of visitors annually who echo the sentiments missionary Jason Lee recorded in his 1834 journal: "The scenery up the Columbia below the Cascades is the most delightful I ever beheld."
