Newel Post, Timberline Lodge - click on photo for larger image.
This is a newel post, which is the upright post at the end of a stair handrail. Many of the newel posts at Timberline Lodge are carved. There are 12 newel posts carved to look like animals, these animal posts are located on the two main staircases. All of the animals represented are found in the vicinity of Timberline. This post is the "fawn" and is at the bottom of the staircase across from the drinking fountain mural on the ground floor. There are photos of all 12 of the animal newel posts in the Bonus Features section of the virtual tour.
