The Pacific Northwest has endured a rough winter. Multiple city-leveling snowstorms in the midst of drearier and rainier weather than usual has meant that we've barely seen sunshine since September.
When spring finally began to creep in, we took advantage of momentary breaks in the clouds to cover as much ground in the Columbia River Gorge as possible. We drove over half the length of the historic Columbia River Highway from Troutdale to Bridge of the Gods past cascading falls and scenic overlooks. After stopping at every roadside attraction along the way, we settled in at Portland Women's Forum State Scenic Viewpoint to cap off our day.
Nothing like watching the sun set on Crown Point to remind us why being an Oregonian is worth the heartache of winter!
