Where in Oregon?

These 100-foot high formations were named for their likeness to the ruined temples in a European city
and were a landmark to pioneers traveling along the Oregon Trail. Do you know where this is?

Pillars of Rome

As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Though the expression refers to another famous city, it also rings true for Oregon’s Rome, where an unique geological landmark took centuries to form. The 100-foot-high Pillars of Rome once served as a marker for pioneers on the Oregon Trail, seen from many miles away. Today the humble riverside community of Rome is a popular gateway to the Owyhee Canyonlands and outdoor adventure.
