Portland Art Collective Retreat at Menucha

The Portland Art Collective held a wonderful, creative retreat in the Columbia Gorge at Menucha this weekend.
When women create together, a special energy radiates through the room to inspire everyone to push boundaries, learn something new and help one another achieve their goals.

To walk the labyrinth is a special treat- to turn inward, relax and reconnect to nature, spirit and soul.

The Columbia Gorge views are spectacular. To the east is the Vista House on Crown Point.

bright, autumn color vibrates through the maple vines & forest, falling leaves rustle

You are so lucky to live near the Colombia River Gorge. I think it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. What a great place to have a retreat.
