July 19-22, 2021 Steamboat Rock S.P.

Moving into Washington State we stopped at Steamboat Rock State Park near Electric City where the Grand Coulee Dam created Roosevelt Lake to the north and Banks lake to the south. It was super hot out and the skies were gray with wildfire smoke, as it was through most of Montana also.

The landscaped park along the banks of the lake with the basalt rocky cliffs across the lake lit up by the setting sun.

We saw several deer around the park, this one with ‘steamboat’ rock as a backdrop.

South of Banks Lake is Dry Falls, once the largest waterfall in the world (about 20,000 years ago, at the end of the last Ice Age!) So much water then, so little now!
