We camped by the Columbia bar for a few days this past weekend. One of the placards an overlook said the bar is the most dangerous one in the world, I can't vouch for that, but I do know it's a bad one. Anyways, it was such a nice day I had to share this panoramic pic. You can see both jetties in the pic, and flat water. The next day it was raining sideways, so I'm sure it was pretty nasty.
