Day 8 of photo challenge- Where I Live

The challenge today was to photograph “something unique to the area you live in”. I immediately thought of the Pow-Wow Tree. It is a bigleaf maple estimated to be about 235 yr old. The tree was a meeting place for the Clackamas Indian people and was thus named “The Pow-Wow Tree”. It resides on Clackamas Blvd in my town near the river. It is the site of the first Clackamas County Fair in 1860 and the first State Fair in 1861. I was recognized as a bicentenial tree in 1979 and has been the Gladstone city emblem since 1967. Yep, thats where I live. Welcome to the city of Gladstone. We’ll leave the lights on for ya.
