Green Gorge just past Gresham


The area I live in is more like a small collection of communities. Gresham, Troutdale and Fairview mark the beginning of the Columbia River Gorge when heading east from Portland up I-84. 5 miles up the gorge you come to the exit that leads to the small community of Corbett, and on the outskirts of Corbett sits this beautiful view. Crown Point, to me, is one of my favorite places to visit, since I think its one the most gorge-ous (you see what I did there HAHA) sights to see if you come to visit our area. This photo was taken last spring, and the hills the Vista House sits on will soon be that green and leafy again!

A beautifully serene picture...just lovely! And I did like the 'gorge-ous' - very clever...:)

Beautiful. It looks like the setting of some mysterious game or movie.

I couldn't begin to count the times I've driven I-84 and it was different each time. You've captured a gorge-ous(YES)view!

We were there on vacation the summer of 2009--What a fantastically beautiful place! I loved the waterfalls and the hikes along the Columbia River. Thanks for the memories!

Great shot! I was gonna ask if this was near Vista House. I saw it from the highway when I went to Multnomah Falls.
