Visiting Stevenson, Washington

Kathika Travel Website published an article today covering things to do and places to stay in Stevenson, WA. The article also mentions a few sites in the surrounding Columbia River Gorge vicinity. Receiving prominent mention are the hiking trails at Beacon Rock State Park.

In Captain William Clark's "blog entry" dated October 31, 1805 he mentioned Beacon Rock, writing "a remarkable high detached rock Stands in a bottom on the Stard Side &about 800 feet high and 400 paces around", calling it "the Beaten rock".
