    Umatilla Plus 30

    Primitive COE camp 30 past Umatilla. No water! The Army COE builds these mammoth dams, but cant make a simple well for their parks?

    Update: Today I actually met a CoE guy and complained about the park with broken water faucets and showers. He informed me that that particular park had been turned over to the local Indian tribe for maintenance. The only maintenance I saw Indians doing was rifling through the dumpster for aluminum cans. Of course, later today I expect I'll meet an Indian who'll tell me a different story.


    Good Bye Columbia

    [THEROAD] The CoE camp straddles the conflux of the Walla Walla creek and the Columbia. Now we follow Rt 12 along the creek to the city of the same name. Adios Columbia. What a grand river and gorge it is! Besides the magestic beauty it generates, billions of watts of electricity are generated from wind and hydro plants along the gorge.
