The Willamette Falls Electric Company (later renamed Portland General Electric) was formed in 1888 to build a hydro-electric generation facility at the falls. Four turbine driven dynamos were built on the east end of the falls. A 14 mile (23 km) long transmission line to Portland was built, becoming the United States' first long distance transmission of electrical energy.[3][4] In 1895 Portland General Electric built a second generation station on the west side of the falls. The newer plant, Station B, is still in operation with a capacity of 14,000 kilowatts. The old plant is currently part of the Blue Heron Paper Company.

Thank you Sue! I enjoy getting up to this coast as often as I can.

Best wishes, Larry

Thank you Sue.

This is one of the roads I use to get into some wilderness areas. Best regards, Larry

Larry, thank you so much. Your photos are beautiful. A lot of my stories are set around Olympia and environs. I can't think of a better example of photography to give readers who've not visited the Pac NW a glimpse of the territory...

Best regards,


You have an interesting selection too...

That looks like a perfect place to relax in the sun, enjoy the water and just get away from it all. How lovely.
