Up in our neck of the woods, there once was two small towns, Meyers Falls and Kettle Falls. As often happens throughout history, one town swallows another, and in this case, Meyers Falls became a part of Kettle Falls.
What remains behind, however, is a lovely place for a walk and a picnic (but not in winter). In winter, we can still take that walk and observe a different kind of beauty…a partially frozen hydroelectric dam. It is the oldest continual working source of hydro power west of the Mississippi River.
Meyers Falls is about a 10 minute drive from where Hubby and I live.
Clicking on a photo will show a larger view.
Hubby always thinks that it is important to put me into a scene…perspective, you know. LOL!
Baby, it’s cold out here!
Sometimes a walk behind the dam will reward you with wildlife. Not today.
The interpretive center where one can learn a little history.
And since it was such a gorgeous winter afternoon, we took pictures of the surrounding mountains as well.
This is a view I am blessed to see everyday by virtue of living across the river. This little mountain is known as Kelly Hill.
