Fall is a favorite time for hikers to hit the trails to discover the fabulous fall colors of the Columbia River Gorge, near Portland, Oregon. The City of Stevenson, Washington recently published an awesome article about the wonderful Fall colors that hikers can experience from The Cape Horn Trail, in the Columbia River Gorge, that we wanted to share with you.
The Cape Horn Trail is one of the newest hiking trails in Skamania County, featuring gorgeous views, rocky crags, streams, two waterfalls and fabulous fall colors. The entire loop is made up of two segments separated by Highway 14. The upper trail climbs from the trailhead, reaching a 1,300-foot high point along Pioneer Ridge and at the Nancy Russell Viewpoint. Both offer outstanding views of trees changing color all the way down the gorge.
The night time sky is gorgeous at Skamania Lodge, near Portland, Oregon. The Milky Way is on full display. This is just another wonder of The Gorge for all to enjoy. Showing nightly for the next two months at Skamania Lodge or wherever your imagination may lead you…

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.
