This photo was taken while the Columbia river was very low because of a lower dam issue. Further down the river is the fabulous Gorge… famous for it’s summer concerts and, now, for it’s new winery and resort. This particular area is a landmark for me. It’s where I learned to water ski, fish, and held one of my first jobs. It’s special to my family, as my grandmother painted this exact viewpoint in watercolor and donated it to the local library, called, “After The Storm“.
