"Boundary Dam" Metaline Falls by mcblacktiger

Metaline Falls Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

Although dams are not the most scenic things to see, this one is pretty cool because it is in a very steep canyon.

For all of you Kevin Costner fans, this is also the dam where he meets Tom Petty in the movie "The Postman": The rest of the movie was shot in the nearby town of "Metaline Falls".

Tours inside the dam are available batween Memorial and Labor Day weekends at www.ci.seattle.wa.us/light/tours/boundary/

The turbine rooms were drilled out of the solid cliff wall !!!!!

The Pend oreille river (if I remember correctly ) is only one of three rivers in the U.S. that flows north into Canada. This picture is looking downstream and north into Canada.

***** And for all you base jumpers looking for a new place to jump..... *****
