Columbia Estuary Sunset

Here the sun sets over the Pacific, with the mouth of the Columbia emptying into a foggy horizon. This is the view from 38,000ft aboard N827UA, an 11 year old United Airbus 319. It crossed into Washington on a 359° heading, right over PDX.

Astoria sits in the northwestern nook of Oregon, and the Astoria-Megler Bridge is visible to the keen eye across the estuary.
