Undamming the Elwha, rebuilding a beach, in time lapse photography

Ian Miller of Washington Sea Grant checked in with a fascinating blog post on the  Coast Nerd Gazette (got to love that name) that has links to two videos that show the profound changes underway on the Elwha River in time lapse photography.

The first shows changes at the river mouth going back decades, through current conditions, with one dam out,  and one to go.

The other shows the takedown of the Elwha dam in hyper speed, from the first whack to finishing touches on the bald hill at the former dam site. Rain, snow, blow and go: it’s all there, from the dam as it stood for 100 years to total demolition, in time lapse.

The former site of Elwha Dam, today, just a bald hill.  Screen grab from National Park service web cam

Have a look and marvel at what is unfolding in the largest dam removal ever in history.
