“The Power of Water” was today’s theme. The barrista at Starbucks in Spokane suggested we head west on US 2 to Grand Coulee Dam. There we experienced the good luck to be two of two on a tour of the hydroelectric plant within the dam which is the largest power generation plant in the US. Then as we left there and headed west we wandered into Dry Falls State Park. In the visitor’s center we realized that we were in the area of a cataclysmic ice age flood that dramatically changed the landscape of Washington state during the last ice age. Two very powerful experiences in one day! Tonight we are camped at a state park near Yakima.
