At a Distance

Everything on the Pacific Coast of Oregon is big!  Rocks, cliffs, beaches for miles, trees.   We were advised to scope out the Portland Women’s Forum, not knowing what that really meant, but the view was worth the long and winding road as we climbed up and up.

Portland Women’s Forum is a group that has been active in the Columbia River Gorge since 1946 for the dissemination of information concerning civic, state, national and international affairs. The founding members recognized that this viewpoint was special and should be saved from private development and shared with visitors forever. The ladies had teas, sales and raised the funds to buy this viewpoint and eventually gifted the property to the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department who now take care of this beautiful spot for all to enjoy.
