Crater Lake National Park is in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon and
is known for its namesake Crater Lake, formed by the now-collapsed volcano,
Mount Mazama. Wizard Island is a cinder cone near the western edge of the
lake. The Rim Drive, a road surrounding the lake, offers views of the park’s
volcanic formations. The park’s numerous trails include Sun Notch, with
views of the Phantom Ship, a small island. It was designated as a National
Park in 1902.

and dedication ceremony for the newly created Canine Memorial, located
in front of the Canine Unit office and public safety building at 4735 East
Burnside Street, formerly Southeast Precinct. 

The memorial project was made possible through countless hours of 
work by local artist Richard A. Moore III, as well as many donors, such
as the Portland Police Historical Society and Adventist Credit Union,
following the tragic shooting death of Portland Police K-9 Mick (above)
in 2014.

During a violent storm on his first return voyage, Columbus, then approximately
41, suffered an attack of what was believed at the time to be gout. During later
years, he was plagued with influenza and other fevers, bleeding from the eyes,
and prolonged attacks of gout. The suspected attacks increased in duration
and severity, sometimes leaving Columbus bedridden for months at a time,
and culminated in his death 14 years later at age 54.
