Time prints of the millennia are boldly etched on the walls of the Columbia Gorge. They record a 40-million-year-long story of change, endurance and majesty. The first human imprints in the Gorge were left by the Indian cultures that flourished here for thousands of years, drawing both spiritual and physical strength from this.
When you visit the Columbia River Gorge Interpretive Center Museum, you are able to visualize and participate in the life of the Columbia River Gorge.
