In anything close to good weather, the old Columbia River Hwy is spectacular. It's jaw dropping. Sunsets will remain in your mind and heart for a very long time. Workmanship on the highway is stunning.

Whether you're looking for beautiful vistas, strenuous hikes, or easy strolls, there is something for everyone. Just be prepared to stop a lot. You won't appreciate it if you drive on by.
