In today’s jigsaw puzzle, we see a rustic barn in the Columbia River Gorge, framed by the snow-capped Mt. Hood in the distance.

Columbia River Gorge is a canyon that carves a dramatic line between Oregon and Washington. It stretches over 80 miles and plunges as deep as 4,000 feet. The iconic white peak of Mt. Hood presides over its commanding landscapes.

Historically, the Gorge has been a significant site for the Native American tribes, including the Chinook, Wasco, and Wishram, who have inhabited this area for thousands of years. These tribes relied heavily on the abundant natural resources, especially the salmon that migrate through the river, for their livelihood.

In more recent times, the population around the Columbia River Gorge has grown. However, it remains relatively sparse compared to urban areas, with small towns dotting the landscape. These communities have traditionally depended on industries such as fishing, timber, and, more recently, tourism.

Designated the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, this region is a bastion of ecological and cultural preservation. It hosts a stunning diversity of over 800 wildflower species and a range of ecosystems, from moist temperate rainforests to arid shrub-steppes.

Its historical landscape is rich with petroglyphs and sacred sites, offering a window into the past.

I lived in the Tri Cities area in eastern Washington on the Columbia River; first in Richland, then Pasco then Kennewick. It was arid and crops grown were hops and spearmint--back in 1958. We had a view of the river from our house, probably not now. I remember seeing the Grand Coulee Dam and watching the locks raise and lower boats.

I AGREE WITH BABYGIRL, NOT ENOUGH SAID ABOUT THE OLDER HISTORY. THE INDIANS HAD THE RIGHT IDEAS. TO BAD WE DIDN'T LEARN FROM THEM ABOUT THE LAND AND WATER. INSTEAD OF MAKING THEM LEARN OUR WAYS. NOT EVEN A LITTLE FAIR THINKING.

Lovely picture and history, thank you.

Thank you for this lovely puzzle and the information. Take care & God Bless.

I love this. Indians have always said that the greedy Americans destroy land and all they touch. The almighty dollar rules them. The Indians stand true to their believes. This land is beautiful and feeds them year round. Condos not needed to survive.
