Wild Horse Monument - Vantage, WA

Most of us who live in the Pacific Northwest have traveled across the state on I-90 and have admired the Wild Horses Monument that can be seen from the interstate about 2 miles east of Vantage.  I, like many people thought that it would be interesting to stop and hike up to get close-up look. 

The name of the sculpture is actually named "Grandfather Cuts Loose the Ponies"  and it was created by sculptor, David Govedare in 1989 as part of Washington's Statehood Centennial celebration.

 In 2011 I finally decided to stop and trek up to the top.  As you can see, the view is fantastic!
