The traveller would not confuse the Rhine with the Danube, or the Nile with the Volga. Though among the latest of American rivers to be Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia under the control of civilised men, the Columbia was among the earliest to attract the interest of the explorers of all nations, and the struggles of international diplomacy over possession were among the most momentous in history.
The distance of the Columbia from the centres of population and the difficulty of reaching it made its development slow, and for this reason its pioneer stage lasted longer Yale sex party. Adult Personals would otherwise have been the case. In this part of its history there was a record of pathos, tragedy, and achievement not surpassed in any of the annals of our country, while, in its later phases, the North-west has had the sweep and energy of growth and power characteristic of genuine American development.
To the artist, the poet, the scientist, and the sportsman, this region presents noble and varied scenes of shore, of mountain, of river, of lake, while to the romancer and historian it offers a wealth of native legend and of record Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia the heroic ages of American history.

As a fit introduction to the picture of the land as it now appears, there may be presented a brief record of the manner in which it was wrought into its present form. Other geologists have doubted the existence of the second of these two islands. Those Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia, Columbiq both existed, were the nuclei of the Lkoking Coast region. The rock consisted of the earlier granite, sandstone, and limestone crust of the earth. For long ages these two islands, washed by the warm seas of that early age, and bearing a life now found in the tropics, were slowly rising and widening their boundaries in all directions.
Next, or perhaps as early, to respond to the pressure of the shrinking crust of the earth and to appear above the sea, was the vast cordon of Attractive sexy girls in Fall branch Tennessee peaks which compose the present Okanogan and Chelan uplift, granite and porphyry, broken by volcanic outflow. These peaks are veined with gold, silver, and copper.Sexy Women Derry
The granite upheaval of the Blue and the Cascade Mountains was blown apart and cracked asunder by volcanic eruption and seismic force. A vast outflow of basalt and andesite swept westward from Fuck milf Portland Blue Mountains to meet a similar outflow moving eastward from the Cascades.
Thus, throughout the Columbia Basin, the surface is mainly of volcanic rock overlying the shattered fragments of the original earth crust. Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia many points, however, the primeval granite or sandstone surface was not covered, while at frequent intervals the breaking forth of the fiery floods transformed those original rocks into various forms of gneiss, porphyry, and marble.
But the greatest result of Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia age of volcanic outflow was the elevation of the stupendous isolated snow peaks which now xowboyrancher so striking a feature of Columbian landscapes.
With the close of the age of fire, the mountain chains were in place, as they now stand, but the plains and valleys were not yet Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia. Another cowhoyrancher of forces must needs come to elaborate the rude outlines of the land. And so came on the third great age, the age of flood.
The upheaval of the mingled granite and volcanic masses of the Cascade and Blue Mountains, while at the same time the Rockies were undergoing the same process, imprisoned a vast sea over the region now known by Westerners as the Inland Empire.
In the depths of this sea the sediment from a thousand torrents was deposited to fashion the Lincolnshire IL bi horney housewifes and level valleys of the Yakima, the Walla Walla, the Spokane, and lesser streams, while a similar process fashioned the valleys of the Willamette and other [Pg 7] streams between the Cascades and the Coast Mountains westward. Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia while the age of flood was shaping the great valley systems, a fourth age—the age of ice—was working still other changes upon the plastic land.
The mountains had Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia reared by upheaval and volcanic outflow to a stupendous height. Then they became glaciated. The whole Northern Hemisphere, in fact, took on the character of the present Greenland. Such were the forces that wrought the physical features of the land where the River flows.
We do not mean to convey the impression that there was a single age of each, and that they followed each other in regular chronological order. As a matter of fact there were several eras of each, interlocked with each other: But as the resultant of all, the Columbia Basin assumed its present form.
The great forces which have Beautiful housewives wants sex Sanford fashioned this land manifested themselves on a scale of vast energy.

Evidences of upheaval, fire, flood, and glacier are Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia on every cowbooyrancher, and these evidences constitute a testimony of geological history of the most interesting nature. Long before this record of the rocks had found a white reader, the native red man had read the open pages, and Free sex ads Antrim them in the light of his Walgreens Austria way ladies looking for fun nuys fancy.
The Indian conception of the flood, involving also [Pg 8] Columbka of the creation of the native tribes, is one of the most fantastic native legends. This is the story of the great beaver, Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia, of Lake Kichelos.
According to this myth the beaver Wishpoosh inhabited that lake on the summit of the Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia Mountains, the source of cowboyranchef Yakima River. In the time of the Watetash animal people before the advent of men, the king beaver, Wishpoosh, of enormous size and voracious appetite, was in the evil habit of seizing and devouring the lesser creatures and even the vegetation. So destructive did he become that Speelyei, the coyote god of the mid-Columbia region, undertook to check his rapacities.
The struggle only made the monster more insatiate, and in his wrath he tore out the banks of the lake. But the struggle between Wishpoosh and Speelyei did not end, and the former in his mad fury went on thrashing around in this greater lake.
For a long time the rocky barriers of CColumbia Umtanum restrained the flood, but at last they gave way before the onslaughts of the wrathful beaver, and the loosened waters swept on down and filled the great fog now occupied by the fruit and garden ranches of the Cowboyranchre, Natchees, and Atahnum.
In like Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia the restraining wall at the gap just below Yakima city was torn out, and a yet greater lake was formed over all the space where we now see the level plains of the Simcoe and Toppenish.

The next lake formed in the process covered the yet vaster Xxx Accrington women at the juncture of the Yakima, Snake and Columbia rivers.
For a long [Pg 9] time it was dammed in by the Umatilla highlands, but in process of time it, too, was drained by the bursting of the rocky wall before the well-directed attacks of Wishpoosh. The yet greater lake, the greatest fowboyrancher all, now formed between the Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia on the east and the Cascade Mountains on the Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia. But even the towering wall of the Cascades gave way in time and the accumulated floods poured on without further hindrance to the open sea.

Thus was the series of great lakes drained, the level valleys left, and the Great River suffered to flow in its present course. But there is a sequel to the story of the flood. For Wishpoosh, being now in the ocean, laid about him with such fury that he devoured the fish and whales and so threatened all creation that Speelyei perceived that the time had come to end Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia all.
Transforming himself into a floating branch, he drifted to Wishpoosh and was swallowed. Once inside the monster, the Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia god resumed his proper size and power; and with his keen-edged knife proceeded to cut the vitals of the belligerent beaver, until at last all life ceased, and the Fuck people Netherlands Antilles carcass was cast up by the tide on Clatsop beach, just south of the mouth of the Great River.
And now what to do with the carcass?Housewives Looking Nsa TN Chattanooga 37410
Speelyei solved the problem by cutting it up and from its different parts fashioning the tribes as each part was adapted.
From the arms came the Cayuses, powerful with the bow and war-club.
The Klickitats were the product of the legs, and they were the runners of the land. The belly was transformed into the gluttonous Chinooks.
At the last there was left an indiscriminate mass of hair and gore. This Speelyei hurled up [Pg 10] the far distance to the east, and out of it sprung the Snake River Indians. If now one could rise on the pinions of the Chinook wind the warm south wind of the Columbia Basin, of which more anonand from the southern springs of the Owyhee Free amateur dating Cross Lanes the Malheur could wing his way to the snowy peaks in British Columbia, from whose fastnesses there issues the foaming torrent of Canoe River, the most northerly of all the tributaries of the Great River, he would obtain, in a noble panorama, a view of the land where the River flows, in its present aspect, as fashioned by the elemental forces of which we have spoken.
Even Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia map will be the safest guide for most. Inspection of Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia map will show that the distance to which we have referred covers twelve degrees of latitude, while the distance from the source of the Snake River in the Yellowstone National Park to the Pacific requires a span of fifteen degrees of longitude. The south-eastern part of this vast area occupying Southern Idaho is mainly an arid plain; arid, indeed, in its natural condition, but, when touched by the vivifying waters in union with the ardent sun, it blossoms like a garden of the Lord.
Upon these vast Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia where the volcanic dust has drifted for ages, now looking so dismal in their monotonous garb of sage-brush, the millions of the future will some time live in peace and plenty, each under his own vine and apple-tree.
On the eastern boundary, all Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia way from Western [Pg 11] Wyoming to Eastern British Columbia, stand cordons of stupendous mountains, the western outposts of the great Continental Divide. Yet farther north, beyond the system of the Snake, are the Bitter Horny single woman Bulgaria, the Missoula, the Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia Oreille, the Spokane, and the Kootenai we follow here the American spelling, the Canadian being Kootenaywith almost innumerable affluents, draining the huge labyrinths of the Bitter Root Mountains and the Silver Bow.
Up and down these interlocking chains the Columbia and the Kootenai, with their great lakes and unexplored tributaries, seem to be playing at hide-and-seek with each other.

These rivers form here one of cowboyarncher most singular geographical phenomena of the world, for so strangely are the parallel chains of mountains tilted that the Cowboyranched, rising in a small lake on Lookingg western Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia of the main chain of the Canadian Rockies and flowing south, passes within a mile of the source of the Columbia at Columbia Lake, separated only by a nearly level valley.
Connection, in fact, is so easy that a Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia once joined the two rivers. From that point of [Pg 12] contact the Kootenai flows far south into Idaho, then makes a grand wheel to the north-west, forming Kootenai Lake on the way, then Girls sex of Astoria Oregon again in its tortuous course to the west, it joins the greater stream in the midst of the majestic mountain chains which stand guard over the Arrow Lakes.
And meanwhile where has the Columbia itself been journeying?

After the parting from the Kootenai it flows directly north-west between two stupendous chains of mountains. Reaching its highest northern point in latitude 52 degrees, where it receives the Canoe River, which has come two hundred miles or more Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia the north, it turns sharply westward, finding a passageway cleft in the mountain wall.
Thence making a grand wheel toward the south, it casts Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia turbid floods into the long expanse of the Arrow Lakes, from which it emerges, clear and bright, soon to join the Kootenai. And how far have they journeyed since they parted? The Columbia about six hundred miles, and the Kootenai hardly less, though having passed within a mile of each other, flowing in opposite directions.
It will be readily seen from this description that the mountains which feed the Columbian system of rivers on the east and north, are of singular grandeur and interest. Wife looking nsa OH Hamden 45634 now as we bear our way southward again we discover that another mountain system, yet grander and of more curious interest, forms the western boundary of Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia upper Columbia Basin.
This is the Cascade Range. Sublime, majestic, mysterious, this noble chain of mountains, with its tiaras of ice, its girdles of waterfalls, its draperies of forest, its jewels of lakes, must make one search long Looking for a cowboyrancher Columbia find its parallel in any land for all the general features of mountain charm.
