Beatiful Columbia River Gorge

Columbia River Gorge

The Columbia River Gorge is for all people with a sense of appreciation for ascetic beauty. We have a natural inclination and awe of the wonders of the colorful world around us. A clear sunset of oranges, reds and Purples - a view from a high cliff, miles of coast, a silver waterfall all give a sense of wonder. It is a natural stress relief, breath in the beauty and the sound and the silence of these monuments on any Oregon weekend.

With a unique ability to take our breath away, the towering waterfalls are plentiful in the Gorge. There is something about the way water transitions in shape and forms a smooth soft surface that quickly changes to a thundering crash. T he massive amount of power and weight, the brightness of the Sun and the Rainbow in the fog all inspire. Whether it is small Creek drops or a towering waterfall from high up in the rocks, the countless types of waterfalls have a way of piquing our interest. The Columbia River Gorge in the beautiful Pacific Northwest is a sight to behold. The Oregon side of the Gorge has 77 amazing waterfalls. The Columbia River highway is considered one of the most beautiful waterfall areas in the world.
