NY Times: Columbia River Gorge+Autumn=Great Delight

The New York Times pays a visit to the Columbia River Gorge:
"The Pacific Northwest is best known for its ancient coniferous forests, where Douglas firs hundreds of years old climb the steep slopes of the Cascade Mountains. The Columbia River Gorge, just east of
Portland, Ore., provides a striking exception. Its vast collection of hardwoods flourishes on broad, low-lying alluvial flats that hug the Columbia River before encountering the sheer, pine-covered walls of the gorge."
