The State Park Near Portland That You Simply Must Visit This Year

Just to the east of Portland lies this incredible state park that, if you haven’t explored yet, you must add to your 2018 bucket list. Located on the Columbia Gorge, Beacon Rock State Park is on the Washington side of the river, making it still accessible after the devastating fire season of 2017.
