Eighth Wonder of the World: Konkolville Fountain

As a child when we spent summers visiting relatives in Orofino, Idaho a highlight was to drive up in the evening to Konkolville and view the pretty lights that illuminated from the fountain in front of the Konkol mansion. At this place east of Orofino Mr. Konkol built a lumber mill then later added a steakhouse and motel. The place became Konkolville. I had a nostalgic flashback the other evening at our motel in Astoria, Oregon. Below our room was a fountain that illuminated the night just like the one I remember from my childhood. I enjoyed watching the fountain change throughout the evening as I snapped pictures.
