The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet and a lower falls of 69 feet, with a gradual 9 foot drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet
Haystack Rock – 235-foot sea stack in Cannon Beach
An old wagon – is a reference to Oregon Trail – a 2,170-mile historic East–West wagon route and emigrant trail that connected the Missouri River to valleys in Oregon… Read more

– a star shaped sheriff’s badge – a very well known element from Westerns (movies)
– I can also mention a pair of cacti, but they are leaning towards the side of the mug
And that’s it! The string is light orange, btw.… Read more
