Dry Falls and Grand Coulee Dam

Did you know that Dry Falls in Washington State is ten times the size of Niagara?  Yup…Dry Falls is the largest waterfall in the world.  That is, it was the largest waterfall in the world; now it is extinct, but still impressive to see.

My sisters, hubby and I have a Dad Day once a year, where we take him on a day trip, and this year we took him to Dry Falls and Grand Coulee Dam.

Clicking on the photos will give you a closer look.


Grand Coulee Dam is the largest dam in the United States.  We happened to be the last tour of the season.

A fire this summer burned the surrounding hills.

The spillways were not open this day, but still fun to look down from the top of the dam.

I  encourage you to take day trips and explore the countryside where you live.  If you can, take your Dad too!
