Sunset at Women's Forum in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon.
Taken from Lemmon’s Viewpoint at the top Wahkeena Falls Trail right before the start of the Fairy Falls Trail in the Columbia River Gorge. This viewpoint is at the top of the Wahkeena Trail; while not difficult it has a steep elevation gain and 12 switchbacks. This is one of the must-do hikes in the Gorge! Wahkeena is the English transliteration of the Yakama tribe phrase meaning most beautiful.

Lower Wahkeena Falls
Lone Flower on the Trail
Experimenting with extension tubes along the Wahkeena Falls Trail in the Columbia Gorge, Oregon. Love this Columbine flower.
A Halo Over Fairy Falls
The sun kisses the top of Fairy Falls so these waterfalls can live up to their name. Not as photographed as some of the other falls in the gorge, but beautiful and worth the 500' elevation gain in half a mile.

Celilo Falls Fishing Village
Before the Columbia River had a dam put in place in March 1957, Celilo Falls were a prime salmon fishing spot for the tribes of the Columbian River Native Americans. These cabins were part of the fishing villages where elders and chiefs regulated the fishing that would only begin after the First Salmon Feast and would occur at each village upon the migrantion of the salmon. The Native American term Wy-am which some say means “echo of water” is the term the tribes use for the falls and the term still lives in the traditions and religions of the Columbia River Native Americans.
