Hellgate Panorama, Lincoln County, Washington

                                             submitted by Raedine Delp

              

                     HELLGATE  is on the Columbia River, 40 miles northwest of Davenport and 12 miles north of Wilbur.  When this photo

                     was taken it was natural that the water rushed through this rock gorge.  It is now covered by the back waters of Grand

                     Coulee Dam creating the Franklin D. Roosevelt Lake.  In the Spring time the water level in the lake is reduced to allow

                     for spring snowmelt runoff and some of the rock formations can be seen again.
