Culture and nature in Maryhill, Washington.
This tiny Washington town has the state’s most eclectic museum—but the stunning scenery of the Columbia Gorge also beckons. Its claim to fame is a full-scale replica of Stonehenge (really); take a snapshot to trick the folks back home. But the town is surrounded by beautiful nature, and you’d be remiss not to hike through the many trails of the 3,338-acre Columbia Hills State Park, set along the Columbia River.
