Eastern Columbia River Gorge
After stops near Memaloose Hills and the Deschutes River, I explored the The Dalles Mountain Ranch area.
It’s part of the Columbia Hills Natural Area Preserve, located at the east end of the Columbia River Gorge in an Oak Savannah environment.
I would have got in some hiking, but it was a very windy day.
The views were magnificent, with the Columbia River stretching far to the east, Mt. Jefferson sticking up to the south and tall Mt. Hood dominating the scenery.
I always enjoy visiting the area. It truly has a stark beauty of its own.
