I must admit that I’m fascinated by theturn of the century engineering creations that are scattered all over America. In Minneapolis, George and I traveled the river by burned out shells of flour mills. Here we have the first of its kind, on the west coast, paper mill.

Milaka took us out here to see this magic. Here from Wikipedia is Willamette falls:

“The Willamette Falls is a natural waterfall on the Willamette River between Oregon City and West Linn, Oregon, in the United States. It is the largest waterfall in the American Pacific Northwest by volume, and the seventeenth widest in the world.[1] Horseshoe in shape, it is 1,500 feet (460 m) wide and 40 feet (12 m) high with a flow of 30,849 cu ft/s (874 m³/s), located 26 miles (42 km) upriver from the Willamette’s mouth.
Until 2011 a canal and set of locks allowed vessels to pass into the main Willamette Valley. Those locks are now closed.”
