A profound reflection on landscape history and his three decades of efforts to preserve the region's landscape, it became the birthplace of the Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the powerful advocacy group that would shape the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act. See the article about Yeon and the Shire here.
