The Dalles Dam and Lake Celilo: a modernist place which displaces and replaces. The Celilo Converter Station linked to the L.A.-bound Pacific Intertie transmission scheme. The Lone Pine In-Lieu Fishing Site. Rock carvings and rock paintings; some submerged, some gazing from basalt cliffs for time immemorial.
