Show the Gorge Some Love
Did you know it’s ‘Show the Gorge Some Love’ month? Many Columbia River Gorge businesses have been hurt by the impact of the Eagle Creek fire and the closure of Interstate 84. The wildfire began near Cascade Locks, and then grew to more than 48,000 acres. You can show your support and help them recover by visiting the area and dining out at a local restaurant. Check out our picks below. Thanks for dining local!

MORE ABOUT THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE
The Columbia River Gorge is a canyon up to 4,000 feet deep. This beautiful canyon stretches for over 80 miles as the river winds through the Cascade Range forming the boundary between Washington and Oregon. The gorge, a popular recreation area, holds federally protected status as a National Scenic Area. It’s also home to many small to medium sized communities and local businesses.
