Grand Coulee Dam, WA

I took my camera out of the case to click pictures of the colorful fall season, only to realize I missed to post this one (from our September trip).... oops!

The Grand Coulee Dam, located on the Columbia river in central Washington, is the largest concrete structure in the United States. In addition to producing up to 6.5 million kilowatts of power, the dam irrigates over half a million acres of Columbia river basin farm land and provides abundant wildlife and recreation areas.

We visited this place on our way back from Glacier National Park, and it was totally worth it. Too bad we could not stay back to watch the Laser Light Show... as we both had to get back to work the very next day.
