Woodland WA, Bonneville Dam and a brewery!

After Beacon Rock, we drove to Bonneville Dam.  Very interesting, a different kind of dam.  Not at all like Hoover.  It is still huge though and crosses the entire Columbia.  It also has a lock system for boats.

We went to the visitors center there and checked out the fish ladders:

just one section of the dam

no, not dead.  Kerry is taking pictures of flowers

in the visitors center you can view the fish climbing the ladder....

that is a lamprey, it is a fish though it looks like and eel to me!

mesmerized by the fish going by
