Bonneville Dam

We decided to go visit the Columbia River Gorge and visit the Bonneville Dam. And was able to drive on top of the Dam/Locks in one area, rather wild.

The shear amount of water coming out of the gates was impressive.

Impressive white water at the Dam. Enjoyed watching it as we ate lunch at a picnic bench.
Am saying the word impressive a lot, well,, because it was. ;O)

The fish hatchery at the Bonneville Dam. Pretty neat place.

Cute little cottage. Looks like both the Dam and the hatchery was built in the 1930's and had a wonderful feel to it.

Really cool weather vane.

The 450lb sturgeon, really big fish.
