P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday #41 (with #40)


I'm fortunate to live in a beautiful state.  For much of the northern portion of Oregon, the Columbia River is the border between Oregon and Washington.  The Columbia Gorge is packed with beautiful sights and sites.  One such beauty is near the western end of the Gorge, on the historic highway built around 1920. The highway winds across the face of the mountains, high above the current 4-lane freeway next to the river.  Vista House sits atop Crown Point and is a favorite of visitors.  One beautiful view of Vista House is from Chanticleer Point, as this image shows.  Joining Kent Weakley's P52 Sweet Shot Tuesday. 







(I was across the country in New York last week, so I'm posting my P52 image for Week 40 now.)

On a visit to our oldest son in Brooklyn, my husband and I were able to spend time in the DUMBO area (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).  Near sunset, the view across the East River at Midtown Manhattan was impressive.  The clouds cooperated beautifully, as well!

Vista House and the area around looks really like a place I like to visit one time - maybe in my next or after next life... ;-)
