United States 20 June: Twisp, WA - Grand Coulee, WA
The Grand Coulee Dam
Thank you, Patterson Lake Cabins, for two unforgettable days and nights. It was absolutely beautiful and the location for two birthday parties!
We met with good friends from our local coordinators Daulot and Stota. Terri and Steve Dixon, their grandson Abe and their dog Dixie.
Libby Harrison, Chamber President and former Mayor of Pateros, shares the Peace Torch with Mayor Carlene Anders and Councilwoman Megan Sherrard. We are so grateful tht they all came to greet us and offer their goodwill and kind words.
Stota and her husband Daulot coordinated the events in eastern Washington, where they lived for many years. It was such a joy to have them. They are wonderful, eager and enthusiastic coordinators and Peace Runners with a big heart for Mother Nature. Thanks for taking us to the beautiful places and people from Twisp to Grand Coulee!
Built during the great depression in the 1930s, the Grand Coulee Dam is a masterpiece of engineering and an incredible sight. We were fortunate to get a guided tour through the fascinating history of this grand landmark.
