Heading home...

This westbound BNSF freight is dwarfed by the quickly rising hills on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge.   Our "dry side" trip this year was very rewarding.

Lovely shot, but what do you mean by 'dry side'.
Also I am hoping to get my husband to visit the Columbia gorge next year enroute to Banff to visit our son. Any suggestions for must see. We would be driving.

Helen, east of the Cascade Mountains, in both Oregon and Washington, the climate is arid and less temperate than on the west side. We refer to the west side as the wet side with its rain forests and lush greenery. The pictures I've been posting for the past few weeks are mostly from the east side with areas ranging from farm land to desert. The Columbia River Gorge cuts through the mountains. I'd be happy to make recommendations, but there is far more information online by googling the Columbia River Gorge. My posts will be back on the wet side for the most part tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by--as always. -Bill

I nearly missed seeing the train until you mentioned. The landscape is wonderful although very dry looking.
