I had to laugh after watching this video… it was the second or maybe third take and I still kept saying the word incredible… so many times that you would have thought that I did not know any other descriptive words! LOL
I was really tired when we shot this, so the brain was getting a little fried and not terribly articulate. But you can see that I did look happy, even if I was a little worn out.
The day had been a long one. Doug, the kids and I had done a bunch of stuff in the morning, and had spent the afternoon filming Becky Sue and Mark Mizell at their polymer clay jewelry booth in the Astoria Sunday Market. We had also walked around for hours in the market and the surrounding city while Doug and Willow took photos… all that before even heading up to the Astoria Column.
The air was warm and windy, and the entire family was beginning to wind down from this action packed adventure, we’ll forever remember as the first ever PcT Roadtrip. As you will see in this segment, it really was an incredible day!
Now do you believe me that the Astoria Column is indeed an incredible location to take in the surrounding views of the Astoria Warrenton area of Old Oregon?
I know we didn’t profile the tower or the other buildings in Astoria too much in our video so here are a couple of others from YouTube that you might enjoy.
This is a neat little promo video done by the cities of Astoria/Warrenton, giving a quick glimpse into the rich history of this area that you may find interesting to watch:
And now for fun… here is an incredibly insane video of exactly the OPPOSITE kind of person from myself, and how they would handle a visit to the Astoria Column!! The paraglider…
I don’t know how anyone could do that! I could barely look over the edge when I was up there. Kept my back plastered to the brick of the column, and only with a good stern talking with myself, did I eventually venture to the railing and try my best not to feel like I was going to be accidentally flung over the side! It was worth it though… like I said, the view was INCREDIBLE! :)
So I hope you enjoyed that! Have you ever been to the Astoria Column? Or anywhere else that offers up this kind of view? How are you with heights? Are you as big a wuss as I am, or are you more like the Para-jumping Dude?
