Marcus Flats and Kettle Falls

We were looking for the original Kettle Falls, quite the mystery to us. The waters so receded, we walked and threw a ball for Sheba through this swimming hole. As we walked towards the banks of the old Columbia River, we walked on old concrete sidewalks! We found First St down by the water. The kids climbed on old foundations and basements of town businesses long buried under the lake waters. This must have been the town of Marcus.

Here solves the mystery of Kettle Falls. It has been hidden below the lake since 1940 as well. From the bridge we could pick out the tops of the old islands and see the ripples of where the falls must crest before their descent.
