Princess Ilchee 10K Vancouver Washington

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Our first walk in Washington was in Vancouver along the Columbia River. It makes the Mississippi look small by comparison. There are so many great photos I had trouble deciding on which to show you.

Here is the Princess Statue. Princess Ilchee was daughter of Chief Comcomly of the Chinook Tribe. She was married to Duncan McDougal, Chief Factor for the Pacific Fur Company. It was high state alliance with the native tribe to keep them friendly with the fur traders.

The walk continued on along the Columbia to the memorial called Rosie the Riveter. Commorates the women who worked to help build ships during World War II.

Because of the cooler weather up there the Dogwoods are just now in full bloom. I love dogwoods.

This is a pretty cool bridge.

The weather up there was wonderful.

    Vancouver is where we would like to settle (though Camas is also on the short list). Loved your comment about the Columbia making the Mississippi look small. Where I grew up (near Vicksburg, Mississippi), the river is quite wide.
