Standing at the Vista House

Vista House in the Distance
There is a spot at the entrance of the Columbia Valley Gorge, Oregon,  where you actually get to stand and enjoy the grand view of the expansive valley below. It is called Vista House. 

From this location it is possible to look west towards Portland and east towards the deepest parts of the Columbia River Gorge. It is one of those natural beauty locations that made me pause and just enjoy the handiwork of God. 
Looking West towards Portland

The beauty of the views are stunning. I stood there for quite a while just enjoying the view, but since this was the beginning of the day, I had no clear idea of what was still ahead.

But even so, this was worth the price of admission.  Did I mention that it is free?  Just the time invested which is well worth the effort.
