Grand Coulee River in Washington

October 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The three of us really enjoyed the drive from Spokane to Naches Washington on such a beautiful clear day.  We drove along Rt 2 to the Grand Coulee Dam and wandered through the museum and walked along the top to view the huge spillways.  The top photo is of the dam and the power towers around the area.  Our favorite part of this scenic drive was along 155.  Steamboat Rock State Park (Photo below) to Soap Lake had huge volcanic formations and areas in the rock where you could see the volcanic tubes exiting the earth(Photo below).  We saw Loons, White Pelicans and gulls along the way.  We followed a river and large lakes all created to make power.  We stayed at a remote quiet campground in Naches and our site faced a beautiful river.  We will be up early tomorrow to explore Mount Rainier.
