Wildfires Are Raging Through This Beloved Natural Wonder In Oregon And It’s Beyond Heartbreaking

While some areas of our country are currently underwater, others in the Northwest have been experiencing quite the opposite issue by battling enormous fires. Saturday one of America’s newest disasters was created after a pair of teenage boys allegedly set off firecrackers along a popular hiking trail in Oregon’s forest. Here’s what we know so far about the Eagle Creek Fire that’s setting the Columbia River Gorge ablaze.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
