Beards Hollow

We took a little bike ride along the Discovery Trail - down to Beards Hollow parking lot and back.  This was the lovely view tonight.

Beards Hollow is named after a Sea Captain who perished in 1805.
On November 15, 1805, Captain Lewis reached the Pacific Ocean near Beards Hollow. Beards Hollow was named after Captain E.N. Beard whose ship, the bark Vandalia, met disaster off the mouth of the Columbia River in 1853. The crew was lost and Captain Beard's body was found on the beach near the hollow.
