    After 3 months of rain, ice & snow, there are finally some sun breaking thru to get out and use my XT-1. This is from the Nancy Russell Overlook with a view of the Columbia River Gorge in Washougal, WA. This is where Lewis & Clark camped just before they made it to the Pacific Ocean. The movie Maverick with Mel Gibson was filmed on this stretch of the river. _DSF6322_3_4nat2cs6. _DSF6298_299_300nat2cs6. _DSF6304_5_6nat2cs6. ch of the river in 1994.

    You don't need to crawl, just come into Portland and experience the beauty of the Pacific NW!

    I'm 40 pretty miles up that river, around a few bends. And yes, it's starting to get stunning out. We Have Daffodils!

    I am very tempted haha That view is just heavenly to me. As a child I spent a lot of time in our park, which was right across the street from my house. I loved it!

    I'm looking forward to spring flowers across the river from you-is that Indian Creek? _MJH1420cs6.

    Not sure - I don't recognize that exact spot, but I'm pretty new here. Looks like Mt Hood back there, and perhaps The Dalles on my side of the river?
