Women’s Health for Primary Care

May 28, 2021 – May 30, 2021

Columbia River Gorge - Skamania Lodge

Situated on 175 wooded acres just 45 minutes from Portland, Oregon, the Columbia Gorge region offers more than 45 recreational activities, including a zip line tour, whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, and more. Multnomah Falls and dozens of other falls like Horsetail, Ponytail, and Bridal Veil line the way along the Historic Columbia River Highway. In the town of Hood River, you’ll find hand-scooped ice cream, hand-crafted beer, windsurfing, kiteboarding, and parasailing. There’s the view from Rowena Crest, the loop up and around Dog Mountain, and browsing the shelves of the oldest bookstore in all of Oregon in The Dalles. Thanks to its unique geography, the Gorge boasts a world of wine in just a 40-mile stretch. You’ll find pinot noir and chardonnay in the cool hills at the west end, while Tempranillo and Syrah thrive in the drier, sunnier east. US Congress recognized the unique splendor of the Gorge and designated it a National Scenic Area, the largest in America. And when you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why it’s one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon.
