In searching for images “3500” how serendipitous that an archive at WSU includes a Spokane Chronicle 1935 photograph of the top of Steamboat Rock from a Washington National Guard aerial unit at 3500 feet! View the article here: WSU Archive Clipping Top of Steamboat Rock.
And I have taken many pictures of that rock, which is now surrounded by a reservoir to irrigate hundreds of thousands of acres of semi-arid land — a reservoir from the waters of the mighty Columbia River whose water comes glaciers [snowpack]. How is the snowpack holding? As of last year, OK, but is it changing now? Check out the February, 2021 Bonneville Power Administration fact sheet.
Think about that.
