The Gregarious Railfan
The Columbia River Gorge

River from Portland OR/Vancouver WA to Boardman OR.  The BNSF Runs on the Washington (north) side of the
Columbia River and the Union Pacific runs on the Oregon (south) side of the river. Bridges cross the Columbia at
Bridge of the Gods, N 45.66236, W 121.90136; Hood River, OR, N 45.71671, W 121.49657; The Dalles, OR,
