I mean Lower Columbia, not loco like crazy. Though if you own a small boat and don’t visit LoCo, you may be crazy. There’s always something to see, to like, to love. Here are my top five of a recent trip.

#5 Working, or sometimes working, waterfront. The devil like claw in the distance is part of a forestry operation and is used for moving logs from water to land. Its rusty red reminds me of a Japanese pagoda.

#4 Do it yourself. I love the ingenuity of people to make something out of nothing, like this amazingly simple Columbia River anchor. Good enough to keep your fishing boat from floating away.

#3 Here islands are not always islands. Look closely above. Notice anything interesting about this island? Read the rest at TerrapinTales.wordpress.com.
