A last min walk turned into a last min hike up Cathedral Trail.... which turned into a very dark, spooky, sprint to the top! But what a prize ❤️...... * * * #astoriaoregon #astoriacolumn #pnw #summerweather #nofilterneeded
When visiting beautiful Astoria, Oregon, don't forget to check out the #astoriacolumn . For some exercise, and a nice view, you can climb the 164 steps to the top! #kelliwongphotography #traveltuesday #Astoria #Oregon #northernoregon #traveloregon #oregontravel #travel #travelphotography #travelphotography #seattlephotographer #seattleblogger #latergram #attractions
Climbed all 164 stairs of the #AstoriaColumn , and saw this beautiful view. Also drove over the ginormous #AstoriaMeglerBridge #OregonCoast #LizandTomAcrossAmurica
When it is this sunny and warm in October we take advantage. This view is from Astor Column Park overlooking the Astoria-Megler Bridge and the Columbia River. So lucky to live in such a beautiful place! #pnw #astoria #astoriaoregon #astoriacolumn #sunflowers #flowers
No visit to Astoria is complete without a drive up to the Column over looking the mighty Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. #astoria #astoriaoregon #astoriacolumn #pnw #pnwonderland #washingtonstate #oregon #oregonstate #shotononeplus

I never knew about the Astoria Column before today. It’s pretty amazing on a clear day. #astoriacolumn #astoriaoregon #columbiariver

It was a good day yesterday :) #AstoriaColumn
Making sure no tourists dirty up our town by smoking...and maybe also on deer watch. #astoriacolumn #oregoncoast #francieandgordon #touristspot
Hier jagt ein Highlight das nächste. Heute morgen waren wir auf dem Berg über Astoria und ein Weißkopf Seeadler leistete uns Gesellschaft. Wir waren beide so von den Socken uns haben bestimmt noch eine Stunde lang ständig sagen müssen wie cool das war 😋 #baldeagle #eagle #naturfotografie #natur #nature #adler #majestic #travelingwithbaby #reisenmitbaby #roadtrip #usaroadtrip #travellingmum #exploreoregon #astoriacolumn #astoria
Bluebird day for viewing and climbing the 164 steps to the top of the Astoria Column. Completed in 1926, the column depicts the discovery and settlement of the Columbia River before the railway. . . . #metrisvanlife #mercedesmetris #mercedesbenzmetris #metrisvan #metriscamper #mbvans #mbvansusa #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifestyle #projectvanlife #journey #travel #adventure #discover #oregon #astoriacolumn #bluebirdday
Commissioned in 1951, Columbia was the fourth and final lightship stationed at the mouth of the Columbia River. Built by Rice Brothers Shipyard in Boothbay, Maine, Columbia was launched with her sister-ship, Relief (WLV-605). The new WLV-604 replaced the aging vessel LV-93, which had been in service on the Columbia River since 1939. The Columbia River lightships guided vessels across the Columbia River Bar and an area known as the Graveyard of the Pacific from 1892 until 1979. Columbia was the final lightship to be decommissioned on the U.S. West coast. She was replaced by an automated navigational buoy soon after. The buoy has since been retired. Because of its importance, the Coast Guard had a permanent 18 man crew stationed on board, consisting of 17 enlisted men and one warrant officer who served as ship's captain. Everything the crew needed had to be on board. In the winter, weeks of rough weather prevented any supplies from being delivered. Life on board the lightship was marked by long stretches of monotony and boredom intermixed with riding gale force storms. The crew worked two to four week rotations, with ten men on duty at all times. #columbiariverfishing #ig_orgeon #visitoregon #oregonlife #pnw #or #oregoncoast #pacificnorthwest #bluesky #blueskies #legoman #navigation #traveler #lightshipcolumbia #astoriacolumn #exploreusa #columbiarivermaritimemuseum #columbia #columbia #lewisandclark #columbiariver #uscg #boatlife #fishing #oregon #astoria #astoriaoregon #coastguard #astoriabridge #columbiarivergorgeous #instatravel

The Peter Iredale shipwreck. And the Astoria Column. Walked up the 164 steps in my favorite stair climbing boots! Panda looks tiny from up there. Anything to delay my departure trom Astoria, I suppose. 10 miles apart, give or take a couple. And such a change in the skies. • #usa #america #merica #oregon #or #astoria #peteriredale #peteriredaleshipwreck #shipwreck #astoriacolumn #beemer_bunny #gsgirls #ilovemyGSA #r1200gs #bmwmotorrad #WLFenduro #xladv #advrider #advlife

Blue skies in Astoria. Beautiful up here...
Climb on up 164 steps in a spiral staircase for a very rewarding view👌

Weekend accomplishment: 2.5 mile 'walk' up a very steep incline, to this tower. Then climbed the tight spiral staircase up the tower. I'm afraid of heights. And hikes. The view was breath-taking. Literally. I couldn't breathe. It was truly beautiful and I never have to do that again! The kids purchased small balsa wood airplanes to float off the top and thought that was awesome. #biggerthanitlooks #legssosore #didnotthrowup #mayhavecried #fearfaced #astoriacolumn #astoriaoregon #weekendvacation #didnotdie
Drove to a little town north of us called Astoria...Climbed to the top of the Astoria Column. We’ve never heard of it until yesterday either! 😂 • • • • • #momentsofours #astoriaoregon #163steps #legshurtingtoday #smalltown #oregoncoast #oregoncoastline #familymemories #astoriacolumn #sofoggy #wehadnoview #lol #lovethesepeeps #oregonmom #oregonmemories #momlife #9weekspreggo #traveloften #adventureawaits #wheretonext

Some days you just need to run away with yourself.

Bye Astoria! You're a beautiful little town and we enjoyed our stay now it's time to see what Washington has to offer. #astoria #oregon #goodtimes #astoriacolumn #fulios #vacay #vacationtime
Oregon Coast 첫 방문지 Astoria. 날씨도 좋지만 너무 멋진 경치에 넋을 놓게 된다. 보물을 찾은 느낌. 참고로 동양인은 거의 없는 잘 알려지지 않은 곳. #oregoncoast #astoria #astoriacolumn
Mission accomplished! Despite some worry that my car wouldn't make it, we managed to see everything on our list today. Leah and I managed to get the kids ready to go, and to the Astoria Column by 11am. We met Ryan there and then went down to the maritime museum where the #hawaiiancheiftain was docked--not enough pictures because we were so busy seeing stuff and asking questions! After that, a stop for some ice cream before heading to Fort Clatsop. Enjoyed the fort and museum and finished off the excursion by heading into Seaside for pizza and a few minutes on the beach. God was gracious today, keeping everyone safe, giving us glorious weather, and letting us get home without breaking down! #lifewithkids #astoriacolumn #tallships #fortclatsop #hideandseek #lewisandclark #digginginthesand #onlyiangotwet
