solitary…

Warrior Point Lighthouse (built 1889) situated on Sauvie Island along the Columbia River to warn incoming ships of a bedrock reef that juts out from Sauvie Island into the Columbia River. As many as 2000 large cargo ships pass by this small lighthouse into Portland, Oregon each year.

rustic remnants…

The Gulick Homestead in The Dalles, Oregon. A Scottish settler married a Wasco Nation woman named Harriet and constructed a homestead on the banks of the Columbia River in the late 1800’s. A very few of the buildings barely stand today.
