I took this image on the way back from the Maryhill Mansion in Washington State.
We were making a shortcut along Dalles Rd, and stumbled on this beautiful old protected ranch with Mt Hood in the distance.
This outcropping was just a little further on from that ranch.
The Columbia River can be seen in the valley below..
