It's Monday. Today's moment of serenity brought to you from the Columbia River Gorge which straddles the border of Oregon and the State of Washington. The shot was taken from the historic Vista House overlooking the Gorge.
The drive up the Columbia River from Portland is beautiful, with numerous stops along the way for historic sites and spectacular waterfalls, including the famous Multnomah Falls on the Oregon side of the river. Well worth the day trip out of the city.
And if you have an extra couple of hours, the sternwheeler tour in Cascade Locks is a relaxing and enjoyable time spent out on the water.
