Horses On the Pistol River

Driving a country road along the southern Oregon coast I spotted these paints!
So calm and peaceful. Lovely reflection - very clear.

Lovely picture. Strange name for a river. Does this name have a special history?

@gijsje Thank you! James Mace a militia soldier lost his pistol in the river in 1853 during a skirmish. Thus the river carries that name!

Thanks, Candace. Nice to read the word 'skirmish'. Sounds a bit like the Dutch 'schermutseling', which has the same meaning. I love languages!

@gijsje I imagine the American language "borrowed" from quite a few countries!
