This is Sunday, 4 August, Day #5 of the trip along the Columbia Gorge. Today we crossed over to the Washington side for the drive west back to Portland.
Our first stop on this last day of the trip was Stonehenge . (Wiki article) It was the nation’s first WWI memorial and dedicated in 1918 to the servicemen of Klickitat County, Washington, who died in the service of their country during the Great War. It was built by Samuel Hill on his Maryhill estate. It is concrete rather than native stone (similar to the “Renton Henge” I sketched 30 July). This is the second henge I’ve sketched in a week! I chose a position that showed the layers of stone settings as well as the windmills on the hill in the background.
The next stop was the Maryhill Art Museum. (Wiki article) It has the largest collection of Rodin in the US. However, I found I was more interested in Queen Marie of Rumania. She was a granddaughter of Queen Victoria of England.
