The sweeping view of the Columbia River Gorge at Crown Point is one of the many incredible sights along the Historic Columbia River Highway.

The winding road passes 77 waterfalls, including multi-tiered Multnomah Falls. SkiBowl, Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows give downhillers three great skiing options. The Mt. Hood National Forest is covered with trails for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

Mt. Hood offers hiking, biking, camping and fishing. Down in the Columbia River Gorge near Hood River, windsurfers ride the world's finest blend of wind and water. Hood River hosts an annual Blossom Festival in April. The weather can be as varied as the topography.

Summer temperatures in the Gorge and the Hood River Valley are most often in the 70s and 80s, while higher elevations are about 10 degrees cooler. In the winter, snow blankets forested ridges as low as 3,000 feet.
