The red tile roof is completed, which I learned about in photo #218.
They have a mess to clean up before the landscape looks like #138.
At first I thought those round things stacked off to the left were rounds of firewood, but they are barrels.
Aruthur.....the two photos I mentioned above need to have Col. Gorge Hotel tags. I had to do some searching.

Oscar is the ghost.

Oscar is the ghost who lives primarily in the attic, but he does move around to other protions. He does some rather strange things. There are other ghosts and some times if you are in a particular place you hear the laughter of children, as if at play. There are a couple of other interesting ones, but Oscar is the prime on who does things in the attic.

You can see a sandbar in the river.
Lewis and Clark comment on Wah Gwin Gwin falls and the sand bar.
"6 miles to a high Clift of rocks Std bend passed a large creek at 1 mile on the Stard. Side in which the Indians catch fish, a large Sand bar from the Lard. Side for 4 miles, at which place a small stream of water falls over a rock of 100 feet on the Lard Side passed 4 Indian Houses at 5 miles in a bot-tom on the Lard Side" Clark: Oct. 29, 1805

My family lived at the Columbia Gorge Hotel for a short while in 1943 until we found a house to rent. I remember the white Great Dane who lent distinction to the hearth in the lobby. There was a large wooden two-seated glider swing on the grounds. Mother used to sit in it with us and "rock" my little sister (Dorothy) and read to me. Two library-ladies lived in the hotel, and when I was sick they made me a colorful picture-book of magazine cutouts glued to brown paper.

I started researching the hotel and the original one that was torn down to make the one that's being built in the picture above about 6 months ago and I would really love to hear back from anyone who has memories, pictures or family stories about the place. Thanks!
