Vista House

On March 28, we also stopped to check out the Vista House.

The Vista House is located at the top of Crown Point and overlooks the Columbia River. Originally built as a resting point for Highway 30, during World War II it was converted to a gun battery. To the locals, it is referred to as the "Million Dollar Outhouse" because all the soldiers did was eat, sleep, and well... you know...

It turns out the Columbia River just wasn't as much of a target for the Japanese as the US military first thought.

Below are some pictures from our stop at the Vista House:
