Mostly filler

A few shots up the Columbia Gorge from Portland to my home town, Bingen, Washington, a distance of about 70 miles -looking east, Mt. Hood in the distance.
The beginning of the gorge -

Looking west from Cascade Locks bridge -

This is it!    In the foreground, along the Columbia, hidden behind those lumber mills, the town of Bingen, pop. about 670, then and now.
Can you imagine these days admonishing your kids as they go out to play, "Don't go above the second bluff"?
