Bronzes, Cascade Locks Marine Park ...
From the Port of Cascade Locks website (2011):

"... In 2010, the Port commissioned local artist Heather Söderberg of Söderberg Bronze Works Inc. to create two bronze sculptures of Sacagawea and the dog Seaman, of Lewis and Clark history. These two figures have historical significance in the area—Cascade Locks was a noted stop on Lewis and Clark's trail. These sculptures are located in the roundabout adjacent to the Visitor's Center. Heather's stunning work set in such a beautiful location creates a site that will be treasured for years to come.

The statues were unveiled and dedicated to Port Commissioner Jean McLean on April 13th, 2011. This date marked the 205th Anniversary of Lewis & Clark's return trip through Cascade Locks (April 13th, 1806). The community gathered for the dedication, live music from the Oregon Valley Boys, and appetizers catered by Portland Spirit while welcoming this beautiful addition into Cascade Locks.

In addition to the statues, Sacagawea Circle boasts comfortable benches, native plants, lighting, interpretive signage, and electrical outlets for public use. This beautiful, peaceful site is a necessary stop anytime you're in Cascade Locks. ..."


Cascade Locks Marine Park ...
Cascade Locks Marine Park is along the Columbia River at the location of the remains of the Cascade Locks, on the east side of the town. The park has picnic areas, a playground built like a sternwheeler, the Cascade Locks Historical Museum (housed in one of the 3 original locks tender's houses), and the Oregon Pony, the first steam engine in the Pacific Northwest.

From the Journals of Lewis and Clark ...

Clark, April 13, 1806 ...
The loss of one of our large Canoes rendered it necessary to divide the loading and men of that Canoe between the remaining four, which was done and we loaded and Set out at 8 oClock A. M.

Lewis with 2 of the Smallest Canoes of Sergt. Pryor & gibson and Crossed above the Rapids [Cascade Rapids] to the Village on the S E Side [east of Cascade Locks] with a view to purchase a Canoe of the nativs if possible. ...     I with the two large Canoes proceeded on up the N. W. Side with the intention of gitting to the Encampment of our hunters who was derected to hunt in the bottom above Crusats River [Wind River], and there wait the arrival of Capt. Lewis.

I walkd. to Crusats river [Wind River] and up it ½ a mile on my return to the party found that the wind had lulled and as we Could See nothing of our hunters.
