Columbia Gorge Trip
This year one of my goals is take advantage of more of my vacation time. In early July we went on a short trip that started with the M.C. Escher exhibit in Portland.
Then we chowed down a tasty meal at Nicholas. On the way out and in an Escher frame of mind I made this photo of shadows on the sidewalk.
We were headed up the gorge and a stop at the falls is nearly mandatory.
We arrived at Columbia Hills Park in Washington in the afternoon. Setting up camp in a wind storm reminded me a bit of Burning Man. Once camp was set, we went exploring in the sweet late afternoon light.
We went to this park to see the pictographs and petroglyphs.
We drove back through the Hood River Valley.
With a detour to Timberline Lodge.
Back in Corn Valley for a sweet sunset.
