Washington state's Grand Coulee Dam is the largest in the United States. Nearly a mile long and 503 meters wide, its base area is large enough to hold all the pyramids of Giza. At 115 meters high, the dam is more than twice the height of Niagara Falls. The dam also has a memorable role in folk music history—a governmental energy organization commissioned Woody Guthrie to write songs about the dam in the early 1940s, including "Roll On, Columbia, Roll On" and "Grand Coulee Dam."

An opportunity gamed away | The Washington Post Giving their power to the republicans, slavery, segregation, and the most damming reason - ɔhristianity or rather saulianity. AND AGAIN, it is the blacks that suffer the most. As a white person, I am growing to HATE my own colour.
The gray ghosts of the Elwha are back! Wild steelhead were spotted beyond the free flowing stretch of river that used to be Elwha Dam, for the first time in a century (July 6, 2012). This one was tagged for tracking. "LIKE" to celebrate this great news!

my favorite of the monuments in Washington DC: the FDR memorial
Mt St Helens Nat'l Volcanic Monument, Lava Canyon hike. The main hike is 5-mi round trip, but there is also a 0.5-mi-long Lava Canyon Interpretive Trail accessible to wheelchairs. From Cougar, drive east on Forest Rd 90 just 1-mi beyond the Swift Dam, & turn left (north) onto FR 83. Drive about 12-mi to the road end and trailhead
