Bowman Dam And Powder House Cove

Our drive along the Crooked River took us to the Bowman Dam, at the western side of Prineville Reservoir.

From the top of the dam, looking back the way we came.
The road across the dam.
The dam on the reservoir side.
And we ended our drive at the Powder House Cove. This is looking back towards the dam.

This is the "historical building" which we think is the "Powder House". Not a toilet but most likely where the explosives were stored when the dam was being built. We don't know this for sure but it's not a bad guess.

I took a lot of pictures of it because looking at it made the wheels in my head start spinning. And if you know me...

On those building shows they show Master Builders, how they make retaining walls or borders using rocks and they are just perfectly flat, I love that look. Might we now see something at your new home???

You are so talented! I'm sure you'll come up with a stone house or some other neat idea. How about a smoke house? Smoked trout! yum...
