Overview of Wind Site and General Area
Closeup of Wind Site and Access

Viento is spanish for wind; it is across the river from Wind Mountain; and it is in the Columbia River Gorge. The Oregon pioneers following the Oregon Trail down the Columbia River must have thought this place was windy! (Bring plenty of food because it's also close to the pioneer named Starvation Creek.)
