Pacific Northwest Stream Survey

Pacific Northwest Stream Survey. Survey of the Columbia River and its tributarie... Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries. Springfield MAIN MESSAGE AUG 2016. CorporateClosures. Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood Timeline. This is the start of a more complete timeline of the Columbia River Gorge (west) and Mount Hood from 1730 until the present time.

Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood Timeline

Who made this? Chase. You can visit his website at ChasingHistory.org Why does the timeline start in 1730? What about all the history before that? The format of this website and spacing between dates made the addition of events more than 300 years ago too unwieldy. What do the colors mean? Green indicates a noteworthy event in the (West) Columbia River Gorge or on Mount Hood. Gray for events of importance elsewhere, and anything else that didn't fit into the color scheme.

Purple is Presidents and Politicians. Why are the Presidents on here? Historical context, as well as matching Presidents to policies and laws affecting the area. How reliable is this information? Just about every fact on this timeline is supported by a source I could cite for you should you email me. Some events were dated January 1 because the date within the year was unknown to me.

Build a stone wall by Charles Sanders

There is a soothing permanence that can be seen in a well-built stone wall. I have built a couple of simple stone walls over the years and thought I'd share what I have learned about the process of building and working with stone. Our area is very rocky, and a few folks make pretty decent money just "harvesting" and selling fieldstone. They work up and down the streams and creeks in the area, hauling load after load of heavy stone out in old pickup trucks. The "crick rock," as it is often called, is sold by the ton to a local dealer who then sells it all over the state and region. Recently, we had a planting bed that needed to be rebuilt. Once I had gathered the stone at the construction site, I decided that I would have to cut or split a few of the pieces to make the puzzle fit together.

Cutting or splitting a stone will give you a piece that will fit better into a given spot.
