This Rare Footage In The 1920s Shows Portland Like You’ve Never Seen Before

There is a place that the people of Portland go to to get away; to get away from the city and directly into one of the most exquisite canyons in the world. This place is the Columbia Gorge, which is chock-full of ravishing waterfalls and trails of all difficulties. The environment is so important to us in Portland; we go to extreme measures to protect and care for it everyday. It’s incredible to know that inhabitants of Portland have always done as such. Below is a video of rare footage in the 1920s showing Oregonians exploring and presenting one of the city’s most beloved destinations.
