Where Eagles Fly and Painting with Rachel
This is today's work. Rachel Harvey and I were up at the crack of dawn, well almost, dawn cracks at 5:30am and we started about 7:00am. This is one mile from the town of Hood River and is called "The Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail". The old highway built somewhere around 1915 or so runs up the Gorge. Some of it can be driven and some of it has been set aside for bikers/hikers/runners/walker, and even dogs, but no automobiles. Which is kind of a shame as the highway was one of those wonderful "modern marvels" in its day, and was created so they could drive automobiles up the Gorge from Portland.
