At the mouth of the mighty Columbia River where it empties into the Pacific Ocean. It is the second largest river in North America, second only to the Mississippi. The Columbia River passes through or along seven western states in the United States, and a province in Canada. The Columbia is the largest fresh water flow into the Pacific Ocean from the western hemisphere. The thin line visible near the horizon is the rock jetty that extends the northern bank of this mighty river. North from here are miles and miles of sandy beach, including the longest unbroken beach in the world (Long Beach, Washington, though this is challenged) made from fine sand carried north by the Japanese Current from the river.
