Explore the dazzling Pacific Northwest on this rich, unhurried journey. You have plenty of time to hike at both Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens while your guide explains how the earth shapes (and reshapes) itself. And volcanoes havenít been the only force at work, as youíll see traveling up the spectacular Columbia Gorge, carved through the Cascade Mountains by the mighty Columbia River. With cliffs rising up to 4,000 feet, the 80-mile-long gorge has a remarkable concentration of waterfalls and offers unique hiking opportunities. Fall under the spell of the Pacific Northwest on this wonderful Off the Beaten Path journey.
