Rooster Rock State Park is located in Multnomah County, Oregon. One of the cool features of the park is Rooster Rock, a column of basalt standing near the Columbia River Gorge. This is a rock loved by climbers and recreational enthusiasts alike. So we thought some fun fingerless mitts would be appropriate, whether you are a rock climber or not! On another interesting note, the eastern portion of the park is designated as a clothing-optional beach, the first officially designated such beach in the U.S. Once again, Oregonians are first in adopting new ideas!
