Sep 8, 2018 - Pend Oreille River, Riley Creek CO and the Bob's Rescue Service

2018-09-08.Pend Oreille National Recreation Area Wanting to see more of Idaho, we traversed the Idaho panhandle and camped at Riley Creek Campground, a Corps of Engineers park along the Pend Oreille River.

At one location on Pend Oreille Lake, they began...

Jun 3, 2009 - Albeni Falls Dam, Idaho

Albeni Falls Dam (pronounced “Albany”) and Pend Oreille River (pronounced “Pond O’Ray”) Albeni Falls Dam sits on the Pend Oreille River about 90 miles upstream from where it enters the mighty Columbia River. Behind the dam, the waters of the Pend Oreille stretch 65 miles through a glacially carved, U-shaped valley that separates three lofty mountain ranges – the Cabinets, the Selkirks and the Coeur d’ Alenes. Rimmed by mountains that rise 6,500 feet, Lake Pend Oreille is one of the largest and deepest natural lakes in the western United...
