This section of the Washington Visitors Network focuses on the Columbia River region of Washington. You can find a fantastic photo essay of the river here. This region offers many splendid resources including a large elk population, many fine steelhead streams and one of the only wild fall Chinook salmon runs in the state. The river is 1,243 miles (2,000 km) long, and its largest tributary is the Snake River. Its drainage basin is roughly the size of France and extends into seven U.S. states and a Canadian province.

The Columbia River Gorge is a massive river canyon that cuts through the Cascades along the Columbia River. Above the canyon sprawls the Columbia River plateau, created over time by a series of basalt flows. Known as Lewis and Clark's gateway to the Pacific, the 80-mile long abyss features stunning waterfalls, volcanoes, lavish vineyards and over 40 million years of history. Etched by water, weather, and time, the unique flora and fauna and dramatic rock cliffs of the "Gorge" have created an inland water paradise Recreational activities are plentiful and include some of the best camping, driving, windsurfing and rock climbing in the United States.

This southwest corner contains the state's only active volcano, Mount Saint Helens in Skamania County. Also located here are the only active sandhill crane nests and the last western pond turtles in the state. Other varied habitats in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area support a unique grouping of rare and potentially endangered species, such as western gray squirrel, peregrine falcon, pileated woodpecker and steelhead trout.
