while visiting the rocky reach dam I saw this mural in the visitors center. I just fell in love with it. from above you can see the wall is curved to depict a dam and you can see dark and white horses in the mural depicting the water flowing over and the power or horsepower that is created from that water. took a while to find more information on it but HERE is more information on a blog I found which is how I found out the painter was walter Graham.

a close up of the work.
More on the dam later I just had to reserve this spot to honor this painter.


  1. Amazing that someone thought of it and then had the talent to paint it! Glad you spotted it.

  2. I remember this mural as a child, as we visited the dam often in the 60's! I have always loved it!
