Views Of The Gorgeous Columbia River Gorge

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 panoramic view of the gorge near Portland

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!

Transitioning from the green of the western gorge to the brown of the eastern gorge

I like to see a fellow Oregonian appreciate the beauty of our state. Growing up here I feel so blessed to have such diversity. People think Oregon (NOT ORA-GONE but OR-GUNN) is always raining. Where I live on the Southern Coast by the Ocean - yes. It's pretty windy and rains frequently in the winter with mild summers. The climate is about 40-60 Farenheit all year round but in Eastern Oregon it gets quite hot in the summer and snows in the winter. Oregon has many amazing waterfalls (as you see depicted in the photo) and mountains as well as beaches and no sales tax and lots of lighthouses to visit! OK, I'm done with my travel advertisement.

I wonder how much of this has been burned in the fire?
