020 Dodson & Warrendale



Cliffs and Rocks Above Dodson
Historic Columbia River Highway. Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Oregon. April 23, 2013

From Horsetail Falls to Kelly Creek (sometimes called Pierce Creek) just west of Warrendale, a distance of 4.01 miles, the road is almost level. Between these points the floor of the valley widens, and it is a half mile to the foot of the cliffs, which rise abruptly to an elevation of 3,500 feet and not more than a mile away.  (Lancaster, 1914 66)

Kelly Creek, "sometimes called Pierce Creek," is now called McCord Creek.

One short break of less than one mile exists at the west end of Dodson, near HMP 37, where the original alignment was lost to approach ramps for exit 35 on Interstate 84. (Hadlow, Landmark Nomination, 6)

Apparently, when the river route west from Dodson was completed, this area was significantly reconfigured. The first overpass for the highway was already constructed.
