Every day, a photograph, a poem.
Today we drove down the highway along Banks Lake, stopping at one of our favorite spots to enjoy the blue of water and sky below the walls of basalt in the Grand Coulee through which the reservoir flows to irrigate 671,000 acres of the shrub-steppe of the Columbia Basin in Washington State.
Fishing, swimming, boating, hiking, and more occur all along this beautiful spot just up the road from us. It’s beauty and story — geologically and historically— are amazing. Click the links above for a start to learning about it.
Reservoir lake filled;
irrigating the shrub-steppe;
place to play for all.Sheri Edwards 061021 16036521 Poetry/Photography
