Rhonda and I visited Upriver Dam on the Spokane River and got this amazing photograph of a rainbow over the spillway. When I was in high school, I lived less than a mile from the dam and used to hike along the water and in the surrounding hills. My yaya (great aunt) Messie once told me she remembers camping near the dam site as a little girl. She said the Spokane Tribe used to have a campsite not far from the present-day dam, and her family stayed there before the site fell into disuse in modern times. Isn't that incredible? Our ancestors were living the old ways not so very long ago.
