Travel Tales: Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

Situated on the banks of the Columbia River, in the shadow of the Bridge of the Gods, is a glorified cafeteria called Char Burger—a symbol of my youth. Although its cuisine was nothing extraordinary, its décor, a combination of authentic and knock-off American Indian artifacts, had a lot of flavor. A stop at Char Burger became my family’s raison d'être, marking the end of our summer evening drives down the coiled Columbia River Highway.
