Bonneville Lock and Dam-Near Portland, OR

Enjoy the view

I love going to the Bonneville because it is always very peaceful. Maybe, I have been blessed with good luck, but there are never a mass of people around when I visit. The grounds are always well kept and you can find lovely plantings of annuals and perennial's during the summer.

The dam is 145 river miles from the mouth of the Columbia River and is 40 miles east of Portland, Oregon. It was built and managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers. It was designated a national historical landmark district in 1987.

One of the areas where you can watch the power of the water
Here is a link to the Bonneville Dam website. It includes lovely virtual tours that really give you an accurate view of the entire grounds and dam.
