Let's go THAT way, I said to Larry bobshots... I have a feeling!

and around the corner from the turn we did not take as planned, we saw the rainbow and both said.. "Ahhhhh!"

Follow your instincts, they are usually right

ROwland Lake along the Columbia River between Lyle and Bingen, Washington... the far hill is the tail end of the Syncline, or Coyote Wall, and on the plateau above you find Catherine Creek Nature Preserve. This lake is stocked with fish in the spring time and the Ospreys, Eagles and Humans have a heyday competing for the fish. I noticed this time the algae is really thick now in the lake..

This previous rainbow (below in comments) on the mouth of the White Salmon River is taken less than 10 miles further west of This one at Rowland... you can get a hint of how much the climate changes quickly from the White Salmon River Valley eastwards... from lush green ferns and Cedar Trees to rattlesnakes and Oak Trees and dry country... the White Salmon River south from Mt. Adams, and the Hood River north from Mt. Hood come together slightly offset into the Columbia RIver, and the combined valleys from Hood to Adams are the last major valleys as you drop eastward out of the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range

Regarding the Algae bloom... just saw a poster from Klickitat Health Dept regarding the Algae in this lake... quite toxic, both to people and especially to animals! Not recommended you go swimming or take your dogs swimming in this lake these days...

I googled the blue green algae blooms and found problems in many states and countries...
info from a CA health dept here: www.cdph.ca.gov/healthinfo/environhealth/water/Pages/blue...

here is a pdf file of the poster from our Klickitat County Dept of Health...
