The Elwha Dam was a 108-ft (33 m) high dam located in the United States, in the state of Washington, on the Elwha River approximately 4.9 miles (7.9 km) upstream from the mouth of the river on the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
It was taken out in an effort to restore the original habitat, especially for fish breeding.
Looks pretty good in 2015. I did a short day hike from the viewpoint.
You didn’t want to be downstream when the floodgates were unleashed.
