As you drive up the Scenic Highway you will discover a rest stop that was built for the earlier cars. Hanging on the side of Larch Mountain it is 3 stories tall and has photo inspiration written all over the views from there.
The wind can get well over 100 mph because of the Columbia Gorge kind of acts like a wind tunnel..
Stop and take some pictures and go in to talk to the friendly volunteers inside, the Friends of The Vista House. They put in time year round and like to talk to you.
