Map of Pacific Northwest

 “I saw the Columbia River and the big Grand Coulee Dam from just about every cliff, mountain, tree, post, and every other angle from which it can be seen." 

          ~Woody Guthrie 

While working for the Bonneville Power Administration in Portland, OR, he traveled up and down the Columbia River. He stayed in a Hooverville, and rented out an apartment in the Lents neighbored. He worked in an office on the second floor of a building on NE Oregon street, recording the songs in the basement.

Monuments and tributes to Guthrie populate the Portland area, a few our highlighted on the Travelin' with Woody in the Pacific Northwest map. More landmarks will be added to the map.
