Sacajawea State Park

The first weekend Steve and I had in Prosser, we needed to get out of the place and go explore. Steve knew there was a large state park in Tri-Cities, so we hit the road. We went to Sacajawea State Park where the two rivers meet and the Corps of Discovery passed through. I'm not posting as many pictures as normal because we plan on taking family there when parents come to visit, but here are a few!

The park was so nice and green and full of people on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
We love the feature from Microsoft that allows us to create panoramics now! Here's a shot of part of the waterfront.If you look closely in the shot before, you'll see what has become a regular site for us in this part of the state. Wind turbines everywhere!Another panoramicWe loved these old railroad bridges.And Steve was totally entranced watching this barge. What was crazy was watching two jet skiers get up close to the barge to ride its wake! When the waves hit the shoreline all the docks got ROCKED...
We enjoyed walking around the park and their Lewis and Clark interpretive center, called the Sacajawea Museum. It didn't look like much from the outside, but was great!Steve is proving he could have been a long bowman.They had skeletons of different Native homes off of the park.Fun day!
