The Astoria Column

The first thing we did on Monday morning was go to The Astoria Column. As the Astoria website says:
In a wooded park and towering above Astoria, Oregon’s highest hill, the Astoria Column presents a spectacular view of the city and surrounding rivers, bay, forest, mountains and Pacific Ocean. The Astoria Column commemorates the westward sweep of discovery and migration. Built in 1926, it is 125 feet high and has 164 steps winding to the top.

The winding road that we took up to the Column!
The Astoria Bridge with Washington on the other side of the Columbia River.
Looking almost straight down from the Column.
 The Column provided us great views of the entire town and surrounding areas. We really enjoyed our time up there. Astoria is beautiful!
