Highways on both sides of river. Which best for scenery from motor home?

If you're over 13'3", then you need to be on the Oregon side east of the bridge to Hood River. I'm in Stevenson tonight and the bridge at Cascade Locks is limited to 8 tons. The Washington side is lot more interesting to drive (two lane, lots of hills, lots of tight curves) but the 84 in Oregon is easier and faster. There's much to see on both sides but if it's just about the drive, I'd stay on the Oregon side. I'm sure there'll be other opinions, but I've been driving here since the '60's.

Lived here for 66 years. Take to Oregon side for speed, to see the sights and go much slower take the Washington side.

Have you been to Multnomah Falls is a Must | Oregon or Bonneville Lock and Dam ? Those two (for me) are reason enough to drive the Oregon side. We stayed in Cascade Locks and drove the toad across Bridge of the Gods Great seafood restaurant on the Washington side.

I enjoy watching for the Bighorns on the south side of I-84. Pretty amazing to see them standing not far from the Interstate fence.

My best wildlife spotting ever was a herd of Elk running in an orchard along I-5 southbound just north of Coalinga, CA. That was mind blowing. I scared my wife I hollered so loud.
