When we go to "the big city" of Portland, we have to drive almost the width of the state. Most of our trip is on I-84, which runs through the Columbia River Gorge. The river divides the states of Oregon and Washington. Before the interstate, there was Highway 30, which took a convoluted route through the Gorge. It climbed high above the river, twisting and turning. Now, much of that route is maintained as a historic highway, with traditional white guardrails on the sides (visible at lower right). One high point of the route is Rowena Crest, which affords amazing views of the Columbia, both east and west. One of those views is my choice for Kent Weakley's P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday this week. This particular view is looking back at the way we had come, a view travelers can see only from the old highway "on top."
