Vista House on the Columbia River Gorge



CLICK on the above sign to read about Vista House.







Inside Vista House. . .

We did not get to go upstairs to see the view because of the construction to repair something. Maybe next time. . .




This is not a great photo of the tiny elevator that fits two . . . I got to ride it with a person using a walker because she was scared to do it alone. It had a bump/jerk to start and end but was otherwise quite nice. . . I was glad Judy asked me to go with her although that meant I didn't get to climb any stairs --but we could not go upstairs anyway -- just to the basement where there was a restaurant, gift shop and restrooms.









Did you notice all the beautiful stained glass windows?

Come back tomorrow to see the view of the Columbia River from Vista House.

The windows are elegant. I love them! In fact, the whole building is fascinating.

this place is absolutely fabulous! I like the architecture. From the outside, we can never guess that the inside is so rich. And what interesting details! And what a view..It was a very interesting post for us, and trip for you!

We've always gone by, but never had time to go up to see it. I think we need to do an exploration of the Gorge.

Almost a year ago I was there, enjoying the view. I didn't go inside at all though, the crowd was a bit too much for me, so now I know what it's like inside! Thanks!

These are very good photos. I love the blues in the sky and the view of the mountains and gorge. That Dome is pretty. This must have been a fun trip.
The reason I don't hang the utensils above the stove here is because the microwave hangs over it and they would not be seen.

I think the elevator shot looks spooky.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
