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.

If you’d like to read about our scenic drive through the Columbia River Gorge here’s a link —
One mighty river gorge, two scenic routes and and umpteen vistas.

      Thanks Nomad.
      Most of the time there's more drama in the sky in the evenings, alle?

      I almost always catch only sunsets. Surprisingly in the last year, I managed to see a few sunrises. 🙂
