William Bayless is the creator of and the energy behind the Discover Hood River website and podcast.. He shares discoveries, personalities, and history on his site and conducts in-depth interviews with locals as a way to expand listener’s knowledge and appreciation for Hood River.

One of Bayless' articles that caught Bridge of the Gods Magazine’s attention is titled “Lewis and Clark Air Rifle: Journey to the Pacific with the Girandoni Air Rifle.” Nearly everyone familiar with regional history knows a little something about Lewis and Clark, but few have ever heard of the Girandoni air rifle. 

We encourage you to give the article a read and check out the other articles on the DiscoverHood River website, but don’t stop there. Grab a hot cup of local joe, settle in for one of the Discover Hood River podcasts online, or listen anywhere with the Radio Public app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Bridge of the Gods Magazine aims to bridge Gorge communities and connect people with businesses and places in our region. Part of that effort includes promoting the work of like-minded folks in the region who love their home in the Columbia River Gorge. We want to thank William for reaching out to us and invite anyone with a story to share to do the same.
