Gorging on the Columbia River Scenic Byway (and Doughnuts)

And the road trip continues…

Vista House Crown Point Oregon

Twenty four miles from Portland, Oregon is the Vista House at Crown Point

The Columbia River Gorge is gorgeous!

8 miles from the Vista house…

Multnomah falls Oregon

Multnomah Falls seems to be the must see waterfall in the Columbia River gorge area

but I really liked Latourell falls

even though the Multnomah stop had ice cream

It’s a quieter spot compared to Multnomah

and you could feel the spray of the falls. 🙂

skidmore bluffs Portland Oregon

After our hike we headed back to Portland,

and searched for a spot to watch the sunset.

Skidmore Bluffs overlook is tucked away in suburbia

and stay as long as you like because Voodoo Doughnuts is open 24 hours

Voodoo Doughnut Portland Oregon

Is it really necessary to put frosting on a fritter? 

Okay, so that question may be sparked by jealousy, as Voodoo doesn’t have gluten-free treats.

But I found plenty in Portland, my fave being the Back to Eden Bakery (for regular eats with gluten-free options we also really enjoyed Teote and The Tin Shed Garden Cafe).

Next post: Snow in June? Stay tuned. 🙂

And if you want to see our first stop it’s here: Seattle

So do you think fritters should be frosted?

Happy Monday!
