Miller Island

The gorge drops sharply toward the river below, where sand dunes form a large island, Miller Island. A stone farmhouse, built sturdily to resist the unrelenting winds, stands on a sheep ranch. Rocks are strewn in profusion on both sides of the road, and steep hills rise from the highway. Farther west the gorge widens. Visible across the Columbia is the rolling plateau of north central Oregon.
