They must have a stunning view from upthere! Although the name is "Cape Disappointment" ;-))
Why is it the most dangerous river?

Thanks Annamaria, It is nicknamed the Graveyard of the Pacific, because of constantly changing sandbars, due to the volume of water and strength of the current. The US Coast Guard trains people for dangerous water rescues, and they even designed a boat that rights itself, because rollovers are common. Any ship heading up the Columbia River must have a Certified Columbia River trained pilot, before it is allowed to enter.
