Scenic Columbia River

  I am linking up with Fiona's Green Day and Tricia's  Watery Wednesday II and Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 

I am showing some of the beautiful scenery we saw while driving the scenic Columbia River Gorge. There were many viewpoints to pull over and admire the beautiful river.

The wildflowers along the scenic overlook were beautiful.



The scenic views are beautiful on both sides of the river. I think the dramatic sky add some beauty to the scene.


We pulled over at the scenic overlook by the river to enjoy the sunset. The Queen Anne's lace looked pretty near the river's edge.


We did see a nice reflection of the sunset on the Columbia River. I hope you enjoyed our drive along the Columbia River

Thanks for stopping by to see my post and thanks to Tricia the host of Watery Wednesday II  and to Fiona for hosting Green Day  and to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

  9. That area is on our list... So gorgeous... I think we've decided to make our next big trip to Glacier instead of Yosemite--but it won't be in 2013.... THEN--one of these years we'll get to this area in Oregon. Beautiful!!
    Hugs,

    Thanks for your visit and comment. There is still so much to be done for women all over the world. I wished men realise this too.
