Fwd: Get to Know the Columbia River

4th grade is the year we learn about Oregon and you can’t get to know Oregon without getting to know the Columbia River. Our Northern border is loaded with rich history, natural beauty, and economic possibilities. If you get the chance, click on the link below to take a look at an incredible photo essay from Bruce Ely and Jamie Francis of the Oregonian and oregonlive.com.

  1. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing. Hiking or biking the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail east of Hood River is another great way to appreciate the Columbia River. We look forward to Charlie telling us all he learns of Oregon history this year!

  2. Thanks for the idea Melissa. I’m always looking for good hikes to go on with my family. The Gorge is pretty spectacular. We’re lucky to live where we do.
