When the sun set on WA-14

The sun setting on a road - Washington state Route 14, Columbia River Gorge
One day, I saw the sun setting on a highway (WA SR – 14).

Washington 14 (WA-14) runs along that part of Columbia River that flows between the states of Oregon and Washington, in US’s Pacific Northwest. This east -west highway on the Columbia River Gorge makes for a great scenic drive because it gives you views of the massive Columbia River and if you are driving west in the evening, you might be treated to a sight like the one in the picture above — that of the sun setting on a road.

And if you are driving east from Vancouver, Washington, you will catch sights of Mt. Hood, one of the many volcanoes in the Cascade Range.
