Sunset over the Columbia River

Columbia River Sunset
Westward Bound: Both — the sun and Columbia River.
(The Columbia River flows westward and empties itself in the Pacific Ocean)

A Columbia River sunset. A few pictures form the Interstate Bridge that connects Portland and Vancouver – WA.

Columbia River Sunset from the Interstate Bridge
A late evening shot from the Interstate Bridge on I-5.
The Columbia River, which flows here plays the border between the states of Washington and Oregon.
The above pictures were shot on a cell phone camera, and from a moving car; I just had to catch that late-evening light and that irresistible scene before we passed all of it.

Linking to the meme —
