Just as the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of freedom, the Vista House serves as the symbol of the Columbia River Gorge. In fact, the architect of the Vista House -- Edgar Lazarus -- and Emma Lazarus (who wrote the poem of the Statue of Liberty), were brother and sister.

Millions of visitors driving from from Portland through the Columbia River Gorge don't realize the full impact of its beauty until they come around the bend near Corbett at exit 22 and see the famous building on the top of the cliff to the right. This is Crown Point and the building is the Vista House.

The Vista House was built in 1916 at the same time as Highway 30 (what is now the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway, and the only way to reach Crown Point). The building was designed to be a place of refreshment and enjoyment of the Columbia Gorge. The octagonal building with its copper dome now houses a museum, gift shop and interpretive display of historic and geologic points of interest in the Gorge (the building is open from March-October).

It has survived many years wear and tear from millions of visitors and pounding gales of the east wind (sometimes measured here at 110 mph). The future of the Vista House is now in the hands of the Friends of the Vista House, who are trying to raise over $2 million for a long-overdue restoration.

Little Crater Lake is located in a beautiful alpine meadow full of summertime wildflowers, and is also a good spot for wildlife viewing and birding. It is accessible by a paved walkway. But the best part of Little Crater Lake is the lake, or pond, itself. It is very small but very deep,and it is “gin clear” with an iridescent blue-green color.<\/p>","post_name":"little-crater-lake","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.1476","lng":"-121.747","distance":"24.7","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/little-crater-lake\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"110276","post_title":"Milo McIver State Park","post_content":"

You could easily spend a whole day birding this large park by car, making short hikes at a range of elevations, from meadows on mid-level benches to steep forested slopes. For a longer visit, use the campground as your base and explore further on the trails. Watch for waterfowl and American Dipper along the river, and Osprey and Bald Eagle overhead. Red-breasted Sapsucker and four species of woodpecker are resident. In spring and summer, look for Willow and Pacific-slope Flycatchers, Cassin's and Hutton's Vireos, Wilson's Warbler, and Western Tanager. Individual and group campsites are available. Daily visitor fees apply.
