Columbia Plateau_5816:Big Sky Series

Above the scenic Columbia River Gorge stands a beautiful and diverse plateau made up of two spectacular volcanoes, myriad waterfalls, thousand-year-old oak, reflective lakes and rolling farmlands dotted by old buildings from another era. This is the less-photographed, but just-as-scenic Columbia River Plateau.

The Columbia River Plateau is a geologic and geographic region that lies across parts of the U.S. states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. It is a wide flood basalt plateau between the Cascade Range and the Rocky Mountains, cut through by the Columbia River.
