While the replica of England's Stonehenge at Maryhill is man-made, nature's floodwaters created the Columbia River Gorge. Buff-colored hills flank SR 14 between Wishram and White Salmon, with 11,239-foot Mount Hood in Oregon a prominent distant feature. Another panoramic vista is near Stevenson, where the cantilevered Bridge of the Gods spans the Columbia River.

The mighty Columbia River flows 1,243 miles from its headwaters in British Columbia to the Pacific Ocean, in the process carving a passage through volcanic rock that delineates much of the Washington/Oregon border. Towering basalt cliffs and sweeping panoramic views are scenic hallmarks of SR 14, which follows the northern side of the Columbia River Gorge.
