Geo 730: November 6, Day 675: Smokey Sentinal

The Columbia River Gorge is rightly famous for two scenic aspects: its incredible vistas, and its waterfalls. Above we almost see Crown Point, and if you know where to look, and for what, you can make out the silhouette of the Vista House at its summit. The vistas were not so incredible on this day. Shifting winds had brought smoggy haze from Portland, and smoke from fires in eastern Oregon. Dana and I were disappointed.
