Deadman Pass Sunset

Cabbage Hill Sunset

You can see forever as truck lights streak across the road.

This was shot on a clear evening from the westbound outlook on I-84.  Here you can see parts of Deadman Pass, The Wildhorse Casino, Pendleton, the eastern edge of the Cascades, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood.

This stretch of road tests a truckers skill. Throughout the year you can regularly find the shell of a burnt up semi that overheated on the way down or a trucker that’s stuck in the road putting on chains for extra traction going up. But for the experienced driver, this is a beautiful and highly enjoyable stretch of highway to drive.
