Visit Part IV: Ice Harbor Dam

The last day we had Ray and Reva here we went to church, and then headed to Sacajawea State Park. Because we already put pictures up from the park, I didn't take any pictures while we were there. Next we went to Ice Harbor Dam just a few miles away.

The dam and visitor center at Ice Harbor were closed for the season, so we only really got to visit a memorial set up above the dam. But everyone enjoyed the great view from the memorial!
I loved all the different rocks against the water and the blue sky.
I especially loved all of the curves at the memorial. It was really eye catching and visually interesting.

The large rock in the center of the memorial was lower down in the valley and was moved up on the hill when the rest of the valley was flooded. The valley was apparently a Native American burial ground, which is why the rock they brought up was covered by these amazing hieroglyphics.
So this is the last of the pictures we have from when Ray and Reva visited. I realized too late that I hardly got any pictures of family and forgot to take any when both sets of parents were here together on Saturday! I failed. Well, hopefully it won't be another two years before we get both of our parents in the same place again. Thanks again for visiting Ray and Reva! We loved our time with you and can't wait to see family again for the holidays!
