Day 144

Bonneville Dam

August 17th, 2010

Looks hazardous!


  1. Bev from Vancouver WA says:

    Too bad you could not have crossed the dam. The spillway probably have been a little refreshing.

  2. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Matt where the heck are you? Are you levitating above the dam? A hover craft? How on earth are you up so much higher than the roadway and the water and dam.? Super Matt- he flies, he hovers, he climbs, he walks. He’s Super Matt !!!

  3. MN Roxanne says:

    It does look a little scary from this view… although interesting too… you sure are high.

  4. Gosh, while you are walking, I am sleeping! You have covered so much ground in the past hours…..when I got up this morning and checked the blog I was shocked that you experienced so much while I was snoring…..

    SO HAPPY you are now in Oregon. I do indeed, feel a bit “smug” that you finally arrived! Frankly, I am happy you crossed over the Bridge of the Gods….it just seems much more romantic than Bonneville Dam. But I agree, that the dam would have been pretty interesting.

    I am off to meet a friend and must run, but want to come back and look more closely at all the pics.

    I am just so happy….OREGON! Gosh, I just can’t imagine walking so far….it boggles this little old ladies mind! I am so proud of you. I only wish I could be there in Rockaway to meet you in person.

      Karin – you have expressed many of my own thouhts – how far Matt has gotten while I’ve been sleeping and how happy I am for him AND how I wish I could be there in Rockaway to meet Matt in person! Plus – it boggles this little old lady’s mind as well!

  5. Christopher says:

    I see it didn’t take you hardly any time at all to levitate to the top of those stairs for this shot.

  6. Jeff says:

    The dam dam! Oh welll They should have forewarned you of the hazardous stairs too..Eh?

  7. John in MI says:

    Looks like two sets of locks, interesting.

  8. John in MI says:

    Here’s a cool video from the Corps of Engineers regarding the underwater fish camera, and the salmon run at Bonneville Dam.

  9. Karen Too says:
