At a Glance

Discover a landscape and waterway reaching from the Canadian Rocky Mountain ice fields through rich forests and empty deserts, past 20th-century science and engineering triumphs and ending at the Graveyard of the Pacific. Our journey will include stories of ancient peoples, trailblazers, volcanoes, epic floods and atomic power. You’ll also get a look at the unique landscapes, plants and animals that make the Columbia River Valley a unique Pacific Wonderland.
