Rowena Crest Wildflowers

Wildflowers at Rowena Crest
Balsamroot and lupine wildflowers cover the landscape of the Columbia River Gorge next to the highway near Rowena Crest. The area is a favorite for hikers and photographers during the spring and is one of several spots in the Gorge known for wildflowers. Hikers beware however, poison oak is also prolific in the eastern Gorge. (Oregon State Archives, Scenic Image No. 20140501-7571​)
