Any visit to the Gorge would be nearly perfect with Women’s Forum as the starting place to a fun-filled day of adventure and discovery. With the scenic Vista House and the wide expanse of the Columbia Gorge in the background, more photographs of the Columbia Gorge are probably taken from this point than anywhere else.

Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as heavy snow in the higher elevations.

Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.
