No Wonder The Parking Lots Are Always Full

The November 9 Winston-Salem Journal featured an article by reporter Karen Parker describing her visit to the Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls, Cascade Locks, and Crown Point.
"As Lewis and Clark followed the Columbia River on their quest to reach the Pacific, Lewis marveled at "several beautifull cascades" that fell from "stupendious rocks."

Several was an understatement, for among the hills and mountains on the Columbia's south bank is an extravaganza of cascades -- 77 in all -- in the biggest concentration of waterfalls in North America. Along with sweeping vistas of mountain, sky and water, they attract millions of visitors to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area."
