Lyle Cherry Orchard
The last day of March. The promise of warm sunshine on the south-facing slopes on the east side of the Columbia River Gorge.
Ravens riding the thermals near the towering rimrock cliffs, looking for the next meal to catch.
Pretty blue skies seemingly stretching forever.
The remnants of a stretch of old road chiseled out of the cliffs, a short-lived experiment to use convicts for construction work a century ago.
The eight-mile loop hike east of Lyle was a beauty. I extended the hike by following game trails and old roads on the high ridges above the Columbia River.
Stopping at the site of the long-removed cherry orchard, I ate a snack and enjoyed the views.
A very nice way to spend a day.
