My brother and I sought out this sculpture as we drove down 84. She's next to the marina, pointing west down the Columbia River towards the Pacific, with her dog standing attentively beside her. It's true, it's a dramatic superhero-like pose. As she points the way ahead, she simultaneously reaches back to touch the hand of the baby on her back; maybe she has to touch hands to activate her powers, Wonder-Twins style!
