Being involved in documenting the project, I had the opportunity to be invited to the Granite Family Fun Day at the project site. We got to wander the whole site on our own! So I did just that! I got to view the canyon that is now free of the dam for the most part and the machinery up close, the step pool construction, large woody debris piles and more. Walking along the face of the mountain cut, I saw sprouts of alder trees coming up through the cracks of the rocks..so the site is already beginning to restore itself. The step pool construction is fascinating to see, intricately and carefully constructed deep pools banked to flow like a river. It will be intriguing to see what happens this winter when the river has the first opportunity to flow through this whole site and not be stopped by a dam.
