The Columbia River
I was prowling through photos and found this one that I took while on a jet boat cruise up the Columbia River from Portland to Astoria . Once we got past the boat docks, the businesses, etc. etc. etc. it looked much as it must have when Lewis and Clark first came. There was almost a breathless hush on the boat as everyone seemed to be soaking up the beauty all around us -- in spite of it being a cloudy, chilly day.
