Half-Day Columbia River Gorge and Waterfall Hiking Tour

Half-Day Columbia River Gorge and Waterfall Hiking Tour

star-5
144
The 80 miles of the Columbia River Gorge’s steep rocky sides offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the world: pounding waterfalls, eagles, century-old trees, ferns, flowers, ancient rocks. This half-day of exploring and meditating on wonders with very short hikes and visits to overlooks and vistas will have you gasping in awe. We'll visit waterfalls and overlooks, selected by our guides to include both the most iconic, like the unmissable Latourell Falls, a stunning plunge-style falls that is one of the most iconic in Oregon, and the special. Depending on weather conditions, this could include a few small hidden waterfalls and another spectacular plunge-style falls with columnar basalt. We'll also tell you stories, not just of the geology and botany and the oft-repeated tales of pioneers and road-builders, but also the old stories we've learned, of gods and animal spirits and the Beaver princess tragically turned into a waterfall.

We explore an era when Portland was the most dangerous seaport in the world - in the 1890's both the British and German governments threatened to boycott the port due to the many sailors and non-sailors Shanghaied out of the city. It seems everyone in the city participated in the crime, from the Mayor, the Chief of Police and the political boss of the city, Jonathon Bourne, to saloon owners, brothel madams and even judges in the courts of the city. Even Deputy U.S. Marshalls took part. It was a city organized to exploit and victimize sailors and anyone else caught up in the madness

I believe I'll still enjoy the journey even if he just took us to the middle of nowhere haha. Just one piece of friendly suggestion: if Mt. Hood is (again) covered in clouds and invisible, just walk a little, take some pictures, and the clouds might go away to reveal Mt. Hood. We spent most of our time inside the lodge and missed that scene. When we went out, the clouds just went back again. But then again, thanks to TJ, we did have an interesting tour inside the lodge too."..."
