The 3 a.m. hour of October 25, 1906, it was a dark, windy and cold night. The 275 foot long, four-masted steel barque sailing ship built in 1890 was struggling toward the mouth of the Columbia River on its way to Portland, Oregon with a 1000 tons of ballast. Its 25 crew and 2 stowaways weren't destined to make it there. Heavy mists obscured the beacons of the lighthouses and the Columbia River lightship, it ran aground about 4 miles (6km) south of the Columbia River Channel.

After years of storms and erosion you can still see parts of the ship - depending on how the sands have shifted, you can see more or less of the remaining ship.
