Skamokawa, a historic shipping town on the north bank of the lower Columbia, was built on a network of sloughs and inlets feeding into the main river itself. This view looks away from the Columbia, and shows how most every business had its own access to the water, which makes sense, when you realize that the town had no real road access until the 1920s. Today the town is a semi-ghost town, though several larger buildings have been restored, and the beauty of the area is still appreciated by travelers along the north bank of the river.
