Turn turn turn...

There is still a flower or two, but mostly the water lilies are beginning their slow return to the darkness beneath the surface of the water until the Spring wakes them again.

Busy in the Gorge-- two trains and a barge...

Across the river you can see a Burlington Northern Santa Fe Feight going west.  On this side (at the bottom of the picture) a Union Pacific container train is going east.  And in the middle of the Columbia River, a barge is being pushed west.

The elevator at Boyd...


This wooden giant was used for storing wheat.  Trains stopped where the dirt road is now.  A water driven grist mill was on the other side.  A normal person would stand only as tall as the top of the lower window on the left side.  And once again the old schoolhouse is peeking from the top right.
