I think this picture is where the Chinook River empties into the Columbia River.

You might be right, I'm not an expert on that area. It's right along the Columbia River and has changed a little since I took that picture.

I spent many a summer in Chinook as a child and remember the pilings that the crumbled building is sitting on that is shown in your photo. Going back to visit for the 4th of July, and will see if I can find exactly where you took the photo.
Great photo! Thanks for sharing!

This photo looks to be shot from SR 109 on the north east side of Gray's Harbor.
SCOTT CAMERON, on July 11, 2008, said:
Don't know about that. I'm not an expert on that area but the Columbia River is in the background and the thin dark line is coastal Oregon in the region near Astoria.

I live about 7 miles from the Chinook River and have driven by it many times. If this shot was of the Chinook River, the view would be of Capt Disappointment headlands and Long Beach Peninsula coast line, the bay is Baker's Bay. I've several photos of the area.

It's right along Hwy 101. The COlumbia River is in the background. And I was not that far from the bridge. The picture was taken 2 yrs ago. Last year when I went by there was little left of that old boathouse. My marker might not be at the exact spot.

I was incorrect. Picture was taken 3 yrs ago. Little remains of it today.

The actual location of this photo is on SR 109 north of Gray's Harbor near Grass Creek and not at the south end of Chinook County Park and north of Fort Columbia as indicated in the geo tag. A common problem with many mislocated photos in Google Earth.

Scott, don't get me wrong, you take great photos. I just happen to live here and know the area like the back of my hand. The great value of your photos is the documentation of the landscape. I've driven by Grass Creek several times and noticed the old boathouse on an old bridge pier and was surprised to recognize it from your photo. Keep up the traveling and take great pictures!

Thanks. I imagine that there is very little left of it now. Hope to be back in your area later this year for another photo adventure with my new 15mp camera and lenses. ... firstname.lastname@example.org
