We are retired. When we travel to Springfield, at a certain point, there it is, big as life, actually bigger. What other forum should it go into? It's just an amazing geologic formation, enjoyed by Oregonians for generations!


I hadn't thought of the PEZ dispenser analogy, but that's a good one.

Yes, I was trying to post a photo of our local Water Tower which is famous for the same resemblance. No luck, so I will post the Wikipedia article, complete with photos and historical facts, instead.

LOL and same here. But what the heck, it does seem amusing. So in an attempt to try to find a connection to this forum, I guess I could go out on a limb and say it reminds me a little bit of some retirees I know. Stony, a little mossy, but basically a lucky stiff.
