An extensive upland, known locally as the west bench, lies to the west of the Columbia River near Golden. It is a rolling landscape that was logged extensively by the Columbia River Lumber Company at the turn of the century, when a train was used to haul the logs from the bench down to the main valley at Nicholson.
