Taking a drive at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area
The Scenic Sherman Pass Scenic Byway
After our lunch break in Republic, we continued our drive through the forests where Bigfoot (or Sasquatch) has been spotted in the past. And although we didn’t see this magical creature, we saw some beautiful shy, wild horses. The group allowed me to take a picture before they ran off.
The Coulee Dam and The Columbia River
The landscape changed from shaded forests to barren deserts. Near the Columbia River, we saw in the distance the immense manmade Coulee Dam, one of the largest concrete structures in the world. The dam was built in the 1930s as part of the New Deal to provide hydroelectric power, provide irrigation water. and prevent massive flooding.
