Some Attractions Along the Way

This was Maryhill Museum just across the Columbia from The Dalles. Its story is very interesting, but not really blog fodder...

Lots of peacocks on the property, obviously not shy!
Just down the way was this exact replica of Stonehenge, created by the builder of the Maryhill Museum as a memorial to the brave soldiers who died in World War I. It was amazing.
This building is called Crown Point, erected on this amazing viewpoint along the Columbia River Highway, itself an absolute jewel, built to take full advantage of every available vista regardless of cost, expediency or time of travel.
Here's a distant view of the same building looking east up the Columbia Gorge. There's room for gazing here.
