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 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.
