    Actually the Willamette fell in Idaho/Montana/Canada, and was brought here in an iceberg with the Bretz floods. Dick Pugh seems pretty sure of this.

    Just learned that the meteorite is in state lands, not federal. Hope to find a piece that was broken off in the fall. Will post again once I find it.

    Last week went looking for it again. Didn't find it, although I did find a 4' rock: limestone, I think. Couldn't have been more than 100 feet away from it. But in a "temperate rainforest" not the easiest think to find.

    Didn’t you have some google earth images showing it sticking out of the ground? I routinely use satellite images to find things that small. What went wrong?

    Time for more coffee.
