The Columbia River

Now the train is rolling along the top of the northwestern United States. We were passing through the Columbia Gorge and had just seen many windsurfers at a town called White Salmon, Oregon.
Look really hard and you can see a freight train on the other side of the river. Those are the trains that make my train, the Amtrak, stop and pull over so they can pass.
Do you see that snowcapped mountain in the background? Can you find the name of it? It starts with an "H".
Another mountain in the area is called Mt. Adams. Google: Mt. Adams Reindog Parade. It's pretty cute. Maybe some day I'll go there, put on a pair of antlers, and join in the festivities!
