Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

These snaps are of very scenic Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. The Columbia River Gorge is a canyon of the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Historic Columbia River Highway is a scenic drive and on their way includes some spectacular waterfalls including the Multnomah Falls. Some of the other waterfalls are Bridal Veil Falls, Latourell Falls and Shepherd's Dell falls . Initial snaps are of Crown Point, which is one of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, providing a panoramic view of the Columbia River. It stands 733 feet above the river and is remains of a lava flow that filled the Columbia River channel 14 million years ago. These snaps are taken early in the morning near Vista house (Crown Point), which looks even more spectacular when the first sun rays fall.
