We drove along the Columbia River Gorge on buses, stopping at Horsethief Lake to view the ancient petroglyphs, and continued along the top of the gorge to Stonehenge, a war memorial constructed in 1929 by local entrepreneur Sam Hill.
Our next stop was the nearby Maryhill Museum, which Sam Hill built as a mansion, but never lived in. Today the mansion is a fascinating mix of exhibits and artwork in a wonderful setting.
We re-crossed the river and spent a couple of hours touring the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum, where we learned more about the history of the region and met two of the raptors.
It was a busy, but great day along the Columbia River.
