Going through the Power House was very interesting and understanding at the same time. There was hands on to try and see how the dam and the electricity was made. They have a short video to watch and to understand.

I stopped by Stave Falls for a quick visit and thoroughly enjoyed every second. Engineering and History interests, gift shop and really nice staff. I'll definitely be going again for a longer visit.
