Discover the best of The Columbia River Gorge with The Oregonian’s Terry Richard. Terry provides The Best of…everything when it comes to the Gorge, even the Best Selfie Spot which is while Kite surfing at Rowena. Read what Terry’s Best Buy and Best Day to Visit The Columbia River Gorge is below.

Best day to visit: May 1 is the peak of the spring wildflower bloom on the sunny easy side, around Mosier and Rowena. But cheat and go every day, from April 15 to May 15, if you can swing it.

Best buy this: Pick up a bottle of Cathedral Ridge barbera reserve and drink it in the winery’s landscaped picnic area, with views across the gorge to Mount Adams (21 and over, please).
