Huge windmills rise from the rim of the Columbia Gorge.

The Goldendale graticule is dominated by the wheatlands of North Central Oregon and South Central Washington. It is divided, like the two states, by the dramatic Columbia River Gorge, through which Interstate 84, Washington State Highway 14, and two major railroads lines all run. Large farms intercut by deep, rugged canyons make accessible hashpoints few and far between.
