The beautiful Columbia

Blog post by Brett VandenHeuvel, Riverkeeper’s Executive Director—

Clean Water Attorney, Miles Johnson, Law Clerk, Jake Brooks, and I went out on the Riverkeeper patrol boat Friday, Feb 1st. It was a gorgeous day on the river, and we got some great photos. We just had to share.

Happy viewing!

    These are fantastic photos. I sincerely hope that you will not mind if I use the golden sunset pic for an email invitation for a celebration of life event that my family is having for our father, who was born and raised in St. Helens, Oregon, and spent many many happy hours fishing and playing on that beautiful river. Much of our our family still reside in St. Helens and Scappoose and remain close to the mighty Columbia.
