Maryhill, Washington, and Biggs, Oregon...


Heading West along the Columbia River, we come to Maryhill, Washington (this side), where the Sam Hill Memorial Bridge crosses over to Biggs, Oregon. You can see the little ribbon that is Highway 97 headed South in the upper right hand corner. Hill was a Railroad icon and Maryhill is named for both his wife and his daughter. Orchards and vinyards do very well close to the river. Interstate 84 is the freeway along the Oregon side.

Maryhill and Biggs look so small beside the river.

The colour shift is incredible.
B blogger has again been hiding your posts from me. I am so glad it relented this morning.

What a terrific landscape photo showing the grand sweep of the land and river. The river water must keep the orchards green. The barge is called a "Tow" when the boats always push. Odd.

Lovely and a vast difference from one side of the river to the other.
