Plateau



This is the amazing view from the Rowena Plateau, located in the Tom McCall Nature Preserve. It is described as the eastern alternative to our western gorge attraction, Crown Point, in the Columbia River Gorge. This time of year the preserve is dotted with lupine and balsam root, among many other wildflowers.  I visited this gorgeous scape this past weekend and will share a few more captures over the next few days.

Good to see the balsamroot is blooming full-force. I was there about a month ago and it was just getting started. There's a post on my blog about my recent visit, if you're interested.

I can see that I need to stop in the Gorge on our next trip to Portland! (The year-old Subaru has some recall notices.)
