The Peace Candle, worlds tallest candle dedicated on Mother's Day in 1971 and again in its current state in 1997. In 1971, it was covered in all colors of actual candle wax with large drips melted down the sides and it had an eternal flame. The wax didn't fare well during the hot sun and the forever flame was too expensive. Since then, the candle was covered in fiberglas, painted and has a neon flame.
Ms Chick arrived during stormy weather with short breaks in the clouds and down pours. On a clear day, Mt Hood would be in the background here. The group were not interested in spending time outside in the rain.
Ms Chick and friends are on the welcome sign at the base of the totem pole...really.
Scappoose's native American meaning is: "gravelly plains or gravelly ground"
The Columbia County Courthouse in St. Helens, Oregon, where part of Halloween town was filmed and some of the Twilight sagas. Every year during October, the courtyard becomes Halloween town complete with the giant pumpkin.
The Court house as viewed from the Columbia River side. Two fronts.
Days later, This was the best we could do to see Mt Hood during Ms Chick's visit. It's in the distance behind the clouds. She has stayed as long as she could, it's time for her to visit other wonderful places.
