Very nice. I have been to Connell, but I have never seen this operation.
Thanks CP. The Columbia Basin's trip to Connell drifted down the gulley and into Connell at about 12:30 on 27 SEP 2015. I think this is a daily operation. These 567-powered motors came back up the gulley at about 14:30. This location is just a little ways uphill from the Moon Rd. crossing.
