The Broder Story

"The Gorge continues to attract those wanting to escape the over saturation that Portland is currently experiencing," writes Hinman. "I've always romanticized the geography of the Gorge. There is a lot of energy built up in what I've always envisioned as a void between Oregon and Washington. So much activity takes place in this void. There's the river, the wind, the recreation, and commerce that takes advantage of these elements—all flourishing and occupying this empty space. Anyway, that's a little abstract, but it's what has always drawn me back."
