Columbia River and I-97

Mount Hood and Mount Jefferson dominated the horizon today as I drove south. Normally I see them on my left as I drive south through Oregon, but today I was winding down a route through the heart of the state, so they were off on the right, between me and the coast. As clouds rolled in around their feet, I have a feeling by sundown only inland travelers could see them.

This vista is from Stonehenge, Washington, just east of the I-97 bridge over the Columbia River. Stonehenge is a replica of the layout of the original Stonehenge, but instead of being made of great dark monoliths, it's built tidily of lighter stones and mortar.

Better with cows.
