Stonehenge on The Columbia River

On one of my regular journeys to The Palouse, this time following The Columbia River through Oregon,  I stopped at the Stonehenge Memorial built by Sam Hill.  Sam's is an interesting story, drivers in the Northwest owe him a debt of gratitude.  He built Maryhill (castle now a museum) perhaps in an unsuccessful attempt to entice his wife Mary to leave Minneapolis.  He also built a replica of Stonehenge as a War Memorial after WW1.  It sits on a high bluff overlooking the Columbia.
