The Columbia River Gorge
Beautiful! That is how I remember the drive. And more than anything I missed the nineT at this point. With the nineT, it would have been a gruelling ride with the wind and cold but I was missing her badly and would have given anything to experience that road on her saddle. In my mind I was already making plans to bring her here. Some more pictures of the drive.
After a bit, I came across a park – Home Valley Campground – where I could stop for a bit and it was right by the Columbia river. Spend some time here taking photos and relaxing near the campground.
After a while, the road starts gaining elevation again.The view continued to keep me engaged. I stopped here from where I could get a clear view of the Vietnam Memorial Highway in Oregon.
After the stop, the road gained elevation and it slowly eased me into a snow covered landscape again. It was time to get off WA-14.
