“This image embodies much of what I think of when I remember growing up in Oregon. It’s overlooking the Columbia River Gorge very near where my family lived. I have fond memories of growing up in this scenic spot, waterskiing on the river in the summer and braving the cold east wind in the winter. The building on the right side of the photo is the VistaHouse which was built atop Crown Point as a New Deal project and has a commanding view both to the east and to the west along the river.” – Mark Dotson
