Bridge of the Gods
At the end of her 1,100-mile journey, Cheryl arrived at the Bridge of the Gods, a steel structure that spans the Columbia River, connecting Oregon and Washington. Legend has it that long before a man-made crossing was built, a great landslide formed a stone bridge in this very spot. Nearby, hikers can find sweet escape at East Wind Drive-In, a mom-and-pop spot known for its towering soft-serve ice cream cones.
