Fort Spokane view

Confluence, Spokane & Columbia Rivers ______________________

One of America’s most extraordinary bodies of water, Lake Roosevelt, is the centerpiece of this beautiful tour.  We head northeast through rolling big-sky countryside to Davenport, and a drive-by look at the century-old Lincoln County Courthouse.  Continuing on to historic Fort Spokane, we reach the confluence of the Spokane and Columbia Rivers where breathtaking views await us.  The Columbia is now one of the longest man-made lakes in the world (Lake Roosevelt), stretching from Grand Coulee Dam for 110 miles into Canada.  We will cross it by ferry at picturesque Gifford, and take the road through the Colville Indian Reservation (burial place of Chief Joseph) up through the Okanogan Mountains, and then down the Sanpoil River valley to its confluence with the Columbia.
