The twin cities of Lewiston, ID and Clarkston, WA, are known as the Northwest’s most inland seaports. Along the Snake River you’ll find Hells Canyon, the deepest canyon in North America. This canyon is known for its pristine scenery and thriving wildlife.
Pendleton, OR/Richland, WA
Pendleton is known for its beautiful countryside, indigenous Native American tribes and network of underground tunnels created a century ago for illicit activities. The area is also famous for its lucrative wool trade in the 18th- and 19th-centuries. Looking through the lens of The Hanford Reach National Monument and the Columbia River is the Reach Museum in Richland which tells the rich and fascinating stories of the culture and history of the region through engaging exhibits, artifacts and tours.
The Dalles, OR
Located in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, between Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams, on the south bank, The Dalles is a perfect photographic spot. Discover the area where Lewis & Clark camped at Rock Fort Camp during their historic journey to explore the Louisiana Purchase territory in 1805-1806.
Cruising the Columbia River Gorge/Stevenson, WA
The Columbia River Gorge is a spectacular river canyon cutting the only sea-level route through the Cascade Mountain Range. A popular recreational destination, the gorge holds federally protected status as a National Scenic Area. The cliffs of the gorge look down on quaint riverfront towns and exhilarating waterfalls.
Mount St. Helens, WA
Perhaps the most impactful of all landmarks in the region is Mount St. Helens. From high on an overlook, bear witness to the awesome power of the volcano whose eruption in 1980 scorched 230 square miles of forest land and forever changed the landscape. Expert guides will show you the pumice plain and lava dome as they explain the effect the volcano had on the lives of those in the surrounding towns.
A nationally significant historic region at the western end of the Lewis & Clark Trail, Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies. In the winter of 1805-06, the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery Expedition was headquartered at Fort Clatsop. In 1955, a replica of the fort was built near the original site and was eventually named a National Monument. With its steep hills and beautiful Victorian homes, Astoria has been called the "Little San Francisco of the Pacific Northwest" and has a revitalized downtown ideal for shopping and dining.
Situated between the waters of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, Portland's history is forever entwined with the fortunes of the great rivers. In the golden age of riverboats, sternwheelers crossed Portland’s waterfront while steam whistles and calliopes rang out across the water. Today, highlights include the Portland Art Museum, the International Rose Test Garden and the famous Powell’s Bookstore, filling an entire city block.
