Hey dudes. Guess what we finally checked out? (Here is a clue.)
Last week, Jaro and I decided to sieze the (sunny and temperate) day and drive out to the Columbia River Gorge. I have been wanting to see it since we moved, but we hadn’t found the chance until recently. While we didn’t get around to hiking, canoeing or visiting the little towns (Hood River, The Dalles, etc), we did sit back and enjoy a lovely Sunday drive.
Here you can see rolling hills of grape vines and Mount Hood in the distance…
And here’s another cool shot of the Washington side…
Not sure what was going on with the white balance of these photos, but you get the idea. So scenic and peaceful. We passed heaps of wineries and, at only an hour’s drive away from Portland, I know we’ll be making regular trips out there in the summer.
I can’t believe how much your first image looks like Haweswater in the UK Lake District. Looks like you’re living the dream. Wonderful.
I love when that happens! It’s amazing how places on the opposite side of the world can mirror each other. I recently noticed a striking similarity between the Cinque Terre in Italy and the NaPali Coast in Kauai. Would be a fun photo project to place them side by side. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
