Columbia Gorge in Central Washington

columbiagorge-2.JPG

Most people think of the Columbia Gorge as the impressive canyon that divides Oregon and Washington. Indeed, the Columbia River is the boundary between Oregon and Washington for over 200 miles. But the river canyon forms in Central Washington and majestic bluffs edge the river from the Grand Coulee Dam almost all the way to Portland.

This photo was taken at the Ginko State Park visitor center just north of where Hwy 90 crosses the Columbia River in Washington.

Oregon was a Republic, encompassing all of the Colombia River drainage, before it was a "state".
