Bonneville Dam and Fish Ladder-OR

Built in 1938 to improve navigation on the Columbia River and provide hydro power to the area. Forty miles from Portland, the Bonneville Dam and fish ladder is considered a national historical site in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge.

Nice photos. I haven't been to the fish ladder for a while. The fish in the 4th and 5th photos are sturgeon.
