I grew up in Stevenson, Wa from 1962 to 1986. I graduated from the Stevenson High School in 1981. I remember North Bonneville before the second power plant was built. Stevenson was such a different town before "Wind Surfing" became popular in the late 80's and before the Federal Government proclaimed the Gorged a National Park. I went through Stevenson back in 2008 and the down town area has been all updated and there is even a resort just to the west of town. Which provides a variety of services and activities to the passer-by. Every time I come back on home on vacation and drive up the Columbia River Gorge it still takes my breath away. The Char-Burger is still my favorite place to eat, on the Oregon side of the river in Cascade Locks, OR just at the bottom of the Bridge of the Gods. The view is beautiful and hasn't changed in all these years. Then I love to drive West on Interstate 80, OR side of the river, to the old scenic hwy. and take it into Troutdale. ((GET YOUR CAMERA READY)). The waterfalls along the way are jaw dropping. Once you get to the top at Crown Point the Vista House is one of a kind. The view is amazing, you can see into the Gorge to the East. This little road trip is a must.
