I am lucky enough to live near the Columbia River Gorge, and am fascinated by its beauty all year round. Here are some of my favorite photos – enjoy!

In the summer the grass turns brown – but the view is still GORGEous

A waterfall and some columnar basalt – my favorite part of the gorge!

A view from Mt Hood in winter

Brown grassy hills looks like suede

There are so many waterfalls in the gorge!

Mt Hood

Windmills and brown grass – much further east than the greenery near Portland!

The replica (intact) Stonehenge near Maryhill museum and winery

A view of the gorge, closer to Portland and still green(ish)

Foggy waterfall in fall

Early spring and the fields are glowing green!
