When I first built my page for Washougal I just put in a little intro but now after having been on VT for almost 4 years I have discovered more about my litttle town then I previously knew. 2.75 miles east of Washougal in 1792 William R. Broughton claimed the Columbia river for Great Britain at Reed Island. It was not until 1846 that this claim was relinquished under the US-Canada boundry treaty. Gosh I could have been living in Canada. :)
Washougal though not far from the bustle of a large metropolitan area (Portland OR/Vancouver WA) is a quiet little place along a beautiful couple of rivers. The Columbia and The Washougal. The Columbia is good for boating and water skiing as it is the larger of the two. I would not suggest swimming in it though. The Washougal although smaller in size is an excellent river for recreation. Lazy, rapid and full of fish.In the summer we get a lot of tourists coming through to enjoy the water and the Motocross Park. For those of you who don't mind some nature instead of some traffic you should really come out to see us. Unfortunately there is only one place to stay here in town and I do not think I would. :) Stay in Vancouver and come play in Washougal!
- Pros:Peaceful little town, Great for watersports,motocross ,and other outdoor fun.
- In a nutshell:Great place to come play in the outdoors! .
