~GRAND COULEE DAM~

The landscape in Eastern Washington State is much like that I viewed in so many of the northern plains states. The magnificent rivers carving through the earth for millenia creating wonderful canyons filled with color. On my way to visit the grave of Chief Joseph I had to cross the Columbia River. My route took me right through the Grand Coulee Dam area.
When I continued on my way west toward Seattle I drove through some beautiful country which included Banks Lake, where Steamboat Rock is located, and the Wild Horse Canyon where the Columbia crosses I-90. I hope you enjoy the photos.

settlers and the Indians
