All that’s left of Condit Dam

Is this little fist-sized piece of concrete.

Tom O’Keefe of American Whitewater shot this photo of the last hunk of Condit Dam.

For O’Keefe and other whitewater paddlers, the White Salmon River is now open and they are savoring every splash.

Here’s a link for more photos from O’Keefe’s celebratory paddle on the White Salmon. Dammed for 100 years, it’s now free flowing all the way to its confluence with the Columbia River. Salmon aren’t the only ones taking notice.
