Wild Horses Monument in Washington

Roughly halfway between our drive from Seattle to Spokane we crossed the Columbia River and were drawn to the impressive cliffs. It was then that we noticed the silhouettes of wild stallions running across the landscape. Naturally, the sculptures peaked our interest and we stopped to get a closer look.

The horses are just off of the interstate, but aren't actually that accessible. We hiked up a steep dirt trail along the cliff, which was another unsuitable trek I made in my sandals. The view was absolutely worth it though. The sculptures were really cool to see up close, and they took on interesting shapes when viewed head on. It was another memorable roadside attraction in a spectacular spot (appropriately) near Vantage, WA.
