The Lyons Ferry railroad bridge, the longest and highest in the Union Pacific system.  I couldn't get all 3,920 feet into the picture.  It took four years to build.

There were some remote WDFG docks, but I wanted to anchor out.  Plus, when I tied up to this dock, it made a weird groaning noise.  I'd rather hear coyotes if I'm going to listen to something spooky all night.

I took an audio recording, but you will just have to imagine redwing blackbirds, quail, geese, ducks, fox sparrow, chuckar, etc.

The entrance to the Palouse canyon.  The NOAA chart showed depths of 40 feet.  Local knowledge was required to find the channel, which is now only several feet deep because of siltation since the last survey.  My lowest reading was 1.8 feet when entering the river channel.
