Wintertime in The Dalles

In late February I  stayed several days in The Dalles on the east end of the Columbia River Gorge.

Temperatures were cold and snow was falling from time to time.

One morning I explored the area near Goldendale and the Klickitat River Canyon.

Many deer were spotted (too far away for photos), and an old groundhog just out of hibernation.

Many windmills were to be seen too.

  1. Thanks for taking us along on your adventure to Central Oregon, John. This is a part of the Colombia River Gorge of which I am completely unfamiliar, so I liked the new territory. And the Klickitat River Canyon looks lovely. Enjoyed the final subtitle, got a chuckle.
