Welcome to the Columbia River Gorge Blog
Welcome to the Skamania Lodge Blog. We wanted to give you a place to share your favorite Columbia River Gorge hotel memory or experience. Read, post, and share.
Skamania Lodge, near Portland, Oregon, is thrilled to be part of an exciting new culinary series recently launched by our hotel management company - Destination Hotels & Resorts. "The Study Of...” culinary series features an in-depth exploration of ingredients with the chefs of the Destination Culinary Collection. Each quarter, a new gastronomic topic is unveiled for our chefs to examine through cooking demonstrations, educational lectures, innovative recipes or sumptuous tastings.
The Columbia River Gorge region has some of the best vistas for scenic photography. With wild flower season in full-bloom, Skamania Lodge IT Director, Henry Kammetler, took these beautiful photos while out and about in the Gorge yesterday.
The two color photos were taken at Tom McCall Ridge which is just outside Mosier, OR. The black and white photo was taken on the Catherine Creek Trail just outside of Bingen, WA.
Skamania Lodge enjoys a fabulous location within the Pacific Northwest’s Columbia River Gorge region and is accustomed to the beauty and tranquility that the area’s natural habitat provides. We are frequently blessed with sightings of abundant wildlife including the elegant dance of eagles soaring overhead.
Beginning May 4th of this year, you will be able to soar with the eagles with our new Skamania Lodge Zip Line Tour. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Columbia River Gorge and surrounding mountains as you experience a tour full of adrenalin and adventure. On this tour, you’ll fly suspended by a cable over the moss covered firs of the rain forest canopy while riding down eight different zip lines at heights of 100 feet and lengths of 1000 feet.
