Visited Pillar Rock in 2014 and 2016.

Pillar Rock is a pillar-like monolith in the Columbia River, near its
mouth. Formerly rising 75-100 feet above the water, it was dynamited and
diminished to serve as the site of a navigational marker and light. The
Lewis and Clark Expedition camped twice near the rock, on November 7 and
November 25, 1805.

The name "Pillar Rock" also refers to a small village on the river's north
shore, opposite the rock. As recently as 1851, the village was home to a
small group of the Kathlamet band of Chinook Indians under the headship of
a man named Tolillicum
