This is one of the first lookouts on your way through the gorge, you can see the observatory and a nice view of the gorge and river.

I stumbled upon this site while searching for the Vista House. You can see for miles and the scenery is just breathtaking! Worth the ride but be sure you have a phone charger so you can take plenty of pictures!

On a clear sunny day this is an amazing viewpoint with a fantastic view up the Columbia River gorge for miles. Well worth stopping in to take in the view.

This was our first stop along the old highway. From here we had a spectacular view of the Columbia River and could see Vista House. Really was worth the stop.
