The Historic Columbia River Highway is a two-lane scenic road, winding through the hills on the Oregon side of the river. Construction started in 1913, and at the time, this was an extremely ambitious engineering project. The road passes by several waterfalls and spots offering spectacular views of the Columbia River Gorge.

This shot was made from the Portland Woman's Forum Scenic Viewpoint, at Chanticleer Point. This spot is maintained by the Oregon State Parks system. The Vista House at Crown Point is visible atop the cliff in the distance.
