I think you are right with the flower, Poppy. On closer look of the flower's appearance, the petals look more rounded than fireweed does.

The flowers are not fireweed but Everlasting Pea (Lathyrus latifolius). From wikipedia: The everlasting pea, or perennial pea, is a flowering plant of the genus Lathyrus in the legume family Fabaceae. It is native to Europe but is present on other continents, such as North America, where it is an introduced species. It is a perennial plant and so grows and blooms every year without new seeds being planted. It is less strongly scented than the related annual sweet pea, Lathyrus odoratus. Everlasting peas are sometimes grown as a garden plant but are pervasive and may be difficult to remove. Because of this, this species is often considered to be a weed despite its attractive appearance.

Oh, I forgot, the flowers are fireweed.

That is looking at the gorge from the south, or Oregon side, and looking across to Washington. The structure, center right, is the Crown Point Vista House.
