Great picture of a beautiful river. I confess that when I see that picture it is very hard not to dwell on what has been lost. The Columbia Dams changed both countries in profound ways, many of them very good (irrigation, flood control, hydro power during the war, and many jobs), but the un-dammed river was a treasure of the same scale as the Amazon or the Nile, and we don't have many things like that on the planet. It is still an amazing river up there, though, and I am glad we can still enjoy the modern version. Still.....
If everybody used shoe horns, they'd catch 'em all on shoe horns.
