Twin Sisters

In January a friend and I traveled down to Umatilla County in Washington to visit a lady who had been recently widowed. We made a short stop along the Washington and Oregon border to climb up to this formation above the Columbia River at Wallula Gap. The formation is known as Twin Sisters and its name is connected with an old Indian legend. I did not have my camera along and took a few photos with my phone.

Imposante Felsformationen! Die sind vulkanischen Ursprungs, erkennbar an den Basaltsäulen.

I can't believe I've never been there. The Columbia is so amazing - and so long! Good thing we have phone cameras.

Do you have to hike in to that location? How far?

RHH replied to raingirl:

There's a short hike that takes you up to the shoulder of the two basalt formations with great view of the river and a couple of other side trails, but it's very easy and requires just a short stop along the highway.
