Historic Hood River
Rowena Loops, 1920
This 1920 view of the Rowena Loops on the Columbia River Highway (courtesy our friends at ODOT) shows the view before the rock work railings and paving. You can see the plateau at the top which now has a scenic overlook. Note the wagon being pulled by two horses. It looks like it might be a construction vehicle.
Don’t forget the commemoration of the highway centennial tomorrow, 2-4PM at Old St. Peters Landmark in the Dalles. It will be a good excuse to check out the new murals downtown.
