I live in Portland, so from childhood I have been lucky enough to take this scenic road that winds through lush hills of tall pine and rugged rock that makes up the southern side of the Columbia River Gorge. Waterfalls - huge waterfalls and lots of them - with hikes winding all around them are easily accessible and the scenic vistas are breathtaking. The trip from Troutdale leading out to The Dalles is the best stretch of road - beyond this it does tend to flatten out as the Gorge levels out into flatland. Beware of ice if driving in colder months, though, and if you suffer from car sickness, this road is very curvy in places. Very.
