Do you remember that song by Ike & Tina Turner? Little known factoid - I helped put on a rock festival near Seattle in my youth and Ike & Tina Turner played at sunset all 3 nights of the festival, and since I was festival "Staff", I got to go up on stage and sit on the side while they performed. Oh my gosh, those people put on one heck of a show. But I digress.... today I organized a group of volunteers for the Friends of Multnomah Falls to participate in a free cruise on the Sternwheeler Columbia Gorge.
Above is a new sculpture near the Sternwheeler building depicting Sacagawea, "A Symbol of Peace", a young Lemhi-Shoshone woman accompanied Lewis & Clark's Corps of Discovery during 1805-1806, all while caring for her infant son, Jean-Baptiste Charbonneau. The presence of the young teenage mother with the party showed it's peaceful intentions to tribes along the way.
