Crown Point & the Vista House (Oregon)…

                                        Crown Point & Vista House on a Summer’s Day

~~~

                                              Crown Point (Thor’s Point) 1916 by Fred Kiser

The Vista House was constructed atop Crown Point from 1916-1918. It was a bit controversial because of WWI costs and a sense of frugalness. Construction went forward and the spot, because of the view, attracts many people all year long.

Vista

on a cloudy day up the Columbia River Gorge…the Vista House atop Crown Point in the distance (Oregon). The photo was taken from Chanticleer Point. The Columbia River is below, with Washington State to the left. That is Beacon Rock to the left, in the distance.

A half hour from home…

the Columbia River Gorge is just breaking free of its fifth ice storm. Normally this is a great view of the Crown Point & the Vista House from Chanticleer Point…a few days ago the ice and wind still made a stable shot difficult.
