Balsamroot From ‘The Gorge’

Today’s post is the first of many to follow, illustrating the uniqueness and beauty of the Oregon Columbia River Gorge scenic area. Today’s post comes from the Tom McCall Preserve, located on the Rowena Plateau and overlooking the Columbia River. The highlight during this visit was the wonderful Balsamroot wildflowers, proudly displaying their beauty in the Gorge landscape:
