09 trip SE Washington ... starting for home
As we headed home we followed the Columbia River.The deep gorge had viewing spots where the native scrubs clung to dry hillsides.We crossed a bridge to farmland made lush from irrigation. On the other side, we visited the petrified forest (photos below).Highway 90 was 4 lanes and we made good time. As we headed towards the coast, the farmland plateau became foothills and then heavily wooded mountains.
