Water Falls, Bridges, 1 Old Train and a little Rain
Katy wanted to ride the the old Columbia River Highway and take some water fall pictures. The plan was to ride down the Washington side, cross back over at The Dalles and take the old highway to the Vista House. She wanted to see the water falls while the spring runoff was still running strong.
This morning, the weather looked iffy, but Katy is determined and we hit the road.
A few miles out of Pendleton
We take the South Cold Springs cutoff
The required "River" shot
Crossing the Umatilla Bridge
Along the river on the Washington side
Stop for a few pictures at Maryhill Museum
The view from Maryhill
Art work? on the grounds of Maryhill
Up to now, we had only had a light amount of rain. Once we leave Maryhill, that would change.
The Dalles Bridge
Just outside of The Dalles, we get on the first section of the old historic highway.
Stop at the old view point
We then stop at the new view point
Between the viewpoint and where this section ends at Mosier
Once at Mosier, we have to take the freeway for about 25 miles to the exit past Bonneville Dam. There we get on the section of the historic highway with all of the water falls.
You will be able to see the water falls in Part 2 of this report. Hopefully it will be on line by tomorrow evening or Monday at the latest.
