Rowena Crest and Memaloose Overlook

Driving to Walla Walla, Suzi and I traveled the historic Columbia River Highway between Mosier and Rowena. I had an ulterior motive: I wanted to stop at Rowena Crest to see another famous longboarding spot with a pretty view.

I didn’t expect to see longboarders as this was the weekend for the Fall Freeride at Maryhill Loops Road, just a little farther east. Jamison and I are hoping to participate in a freeride next summer.

I was surprised to learn Rowena Crest is just above Mayer State Park, where I’ve taken a few pictures. I guess it should have been obvious…

This highway is a pleasant diversion, one Suzi and I used to take to and from college many years ago. I think we’re going to add it back to the repertoire for our trips up and down the gorge.
