Sunrise, Columbia Gorge

First light crests the eastern walls of the Columbia Gorge to begin a new day on the river. The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is a spectacular river canyon, 80 miles long and up to 4,000 feet deep, that meanders past cliffs, spires, and ridges set against nearby peaks of the PNW’s Cascade Mountain Range.

Nice colors and light. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you, Han. The eastern part of Washington is so different from the west that many visitors cannot believe the permutation—evergreen forests to high desert.
