"View from Nancy's Looking South"
A journalistic sketch with labels and arrows, just for fun. You can't see it in the sketch, but the river turns at the far end, disappearing behind trees and raised banks, to run eastward. Miles east of here, it turns south again, then west where it heads through the majestic Columbia Gorge toward Portland and the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and Clark visited here once. In their journals they comment on how thick the river was with salmon. Not so much anymore.
