Amazing views of the Columbia River from up here. Definitely a great picture spot and worth a few minutes time if you are near the area!

Rented a car while in Portland to see a few sites. Decided to go searching for Vista House and glad I found it! Perched high upon a ledge, Vista House offers breathtaking views of mountains and the river. The Vista House was closed when I...More

Panoramic view of the surrounding valley, the building is cute but small. It doesn't take any time at all

This is a must see when traveling the I-84. It can be seen from the highway. It provides a great view of the Columbia River. Inside, one can learn of local history.
