Wednesday Wanderings

Let’s take a moment and wander a few pathways to some beautiful waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge that are along the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway.

Ever wonder where the expression “Where in Sam Hill are you?”

Well, there was a man named Samuel Hill.

Way back in 1913, he had a vision for a scenic highway to be built paralleling the Columbia River so that people could enjoy the beauty of nature.

He was a “good roads” enthusiast. He apparently loved a good country afternoon drive and was the driving force behind designing and getting this highway built.

In the next photo you get a view of the river gorge from the spot where the committee decided that Sam Hill was right and that a highway must be built.

So lets enjoy some of the nature his road allowed us to photograph.

Enjoy this Wednesday Wanderings…
