  1. I visited Guy W. Talbot State Park during my bus tours from boston to washington dc. It is a beautiful state park in the Columbia River Gorge. This park offers world's best hiking trails. This park is well known because it was the property of Guy Webster Talbot. He used this place to explore the summer vacations. But in these days it is very famous for its best picnic spots.
