Explore the Gorge with Laura O. Foster Talk
Columbia Gorge Getaways Book Cover
“The Columbia River Gorge -It’s like a national park but with better restaurants.” Laura O. Foster
Portland Audubon welcomes author and Portland hiking expert Laura O. Foster for a free presentation of her new book, Columbia Gorge Getaways on Tuesday, September 20 at 7 p.m. in Heron Hall. The book is a complete guide to the Columbia River Gorge, an 80-mile-long chasm that's one of the nation’s few National Scenic Areas.
With 12 ready-to-go vacation itineraries, the book is like having a personal tour guide always ready in your glove-box. The itineraries—plus a one to five-day highlights tour—tell you everything you need to have a blast in the gorge, from beaches to back roads, historic downtowns, hiking and biking routes, shopping, brewpubs and wineries, rural inns, historic sites and museums. Appendices cover festivals, along with gorge outfitters, guides, lessons, rentals and excursions.
Laura is the author of seven popular books on hiking and travel in the Portland region, including the recent Walking with Ramona: Exploring Beverly Cleary’s Portland. She regularly appears at Audubon’s Wild Arts Festival Book Fair. Contact the Nature Store at (503)292-9453 for more information.
