Today I walked around the old quarry east of Cascade Locks known as "Government Rock." It's a very fun-to-explore little 30-acre peninsula at the end of Wyeth Road (map
) that would be an absolutely amazing site for a disc golf course. It's full of basalt cliffs, flat rocky meadows and old roads, and alder and cottonwood trees. Not to mention wind and water all around.
Right now it's being used mostly for shore fishing, which of course is completely compatible with disc golf. But, this rock is exactly where the Warm Springs Tribe wanted to build their casino -- which would not be so compatible with disc golf. BUT, now it turns out that they would NOT, in fact, site it on Goverment Rock. But I think the Tribe still owns it for now, casino or not.
