Looking northeast, toward a Bonneville Power Administration wind farm on the crest of the Columbia River Gorge.


July, 2016.

On this fascinating and beautiful drive, the terrain changes from dry grassy slopes in the photo above, to steppes hosting evergreen trees and shrubs.

    Lovely landscapes Lindy – especially liked the final image. BTW, wouldn’t you hate living at Cape disappointment? What a terrible choice for a name!!

  3. Lindy Le Coq says:

    It was named by an English Fur trader, John Meares in 1788. “The name reflects Meares’ chagrin at not finding the Columbia River.” Little did he know the Columbia was flowing out underneath him! http://www.historylink.org/File/5621
