Photographer's Note

This is a view looking westward from the Bridge of The Gods, in Cascade Locks, Oregon. There is a restaurant there that collects antique farm equipment and that is what you see in the foreground of this photo.

The grassy cliff top you can see in the distance is Munra Point, which has a VERY steep trail you can climb. I have never made it to the top of it, and since I'm a bit afraid of heights, I don't think I will.

Munra Point was named in 1915 to honor Katherine Sterrett Munra. "Grandma Munra", as she was called, was a pioneer woman who kept a railroad eating house at Bonneville and later at Meacham. According to Oregon Geographic Names (McArthur and McArthur, 2003):
"... her name was attached to the point in question by a committee representing various Oregon historical organizations. Munra Point is just south of Bonneville, between Tanner Creek and Moffett Creek. The name has been approved by the USBGN. In 1928, the Union Pacific Railroad named a station (siding) east of Pendleton for "Grandma" Munra."
