The History Museum of Hood River County
Bringing the Rich History of Hood River County to Life
I shared a couple of Alva Day photos of this major malfunction at the White River Falls power plant almost ten years ago. This post and this post give some additional context.
I still haven’t had a chance to visit the site. This spring I’ll need to make the trip. Google tells me it’s just an hour away.

That is a major failure of the turbine casting!

Drove by here just last week on my way to Maupin. Absolutely the most beautiful drive. Jefferson, Hood, Adams and a bit of Rainier basking in a pink sunset. You need to go east to west. I went from Biggs to Grass Valley then took Hwy 216 west. I kept wondering what the wagon trains thought as they viewed those mountains. Or perhaps they were shrouded in clouds and they had no idea what was ahead. The trip down to Shearars Bridge is a bit horrendous.

I’ve visited several times when camped at Tygh Valley fairgrounds, on my way south.It’s very interesting and there is a nice sandy beach for a dip when the weather is hot. I have plenty of pictures, wish I could share.You will have to bring your own cameras..(;+)…..
