She-Who-Watches (Tsagagalal)

One of the largest and most well-known pictographs in the Gorge is She-Who-Watches, a large drawing overlooking the Columbia River

She-Who-Watches is the most well-known of all rock art in the Columbia River Gorge.  Sometimes, this work of art is referred to as Owl Woman, but her native name is Tsagagalal.


Tsagagalal is a grinning face with huge eyes and is thought to have watched over a village below.  Viewing “She Who Watches” and the other petroglyphs in the nearby vicinity is by guided tour only.  Tours are seasonal and limited to 25 people; call 509-773-3733 to reserve a space.
