The Grand Coulee Dam in Washington

Sunday morning we all (MOST of the group) loaded up on the big bus at 8 in the morning and headed to the Grand Coulee Dam. It was a 3 hour bus ride :( but we had a couple of rest stops and we both brought our laptops so that passed the time. This was also a chance for us to catch up on the movies we rented. We watched a Nicholas Cage movie that was terrible then we watched "Valentine's Day" which was AMAZING! If you haven't seen it you should! It has a ton of stars in it and the way it is tied together it was awesome!

So we got to the dam and ate lunch at this restaurant by the dam. I had a turkey club and Rk had a Philly. We get got to go our tour. We got to see EVERYTHING. The powerhouses and all. It is so amazing how this all works. Unbelievable really! We had to wear hardhats and safety glasses, lol. We had to walk through these tunnel things and to me it was CREEPY! They were clean and well-kept but I don't do well in those situations. Packed full elevator--no problem...dark small tunnel---count me out! Rk thought it was just too funny. Terd.

On the way home we stopped in Spokane, WA and ate at the Steam Plant Grill. This is an old steam plant that they turned into a restaurant. It was amazing and the food was pretty good too! The last few pictures are the inside of that.

I'm not going to try to explain what each of the photos are because truthfully I don't know for sure what they all are. If you are in the utility industry and reading this you will probably already know what the parts are! Hope you enjoy our day :)
