Photographers, this offers the chance to get up close and personal with a unique geological formation that is mentioned in the Lewis and Clark journals. Our view today of the rock is most likely what they saw two hundred years ago. Expect sun and blue skies much of the year and brutal cold in the winter, since this is Eastern Oregon. I used a zoom lens to take advantage of wide-angles as well as closeups of the rock face. Depending on the light, a polarizer is useful. Afternoon sun is on the face.
