Canal

This tour once traversed an area of berry fields, alfalfa farms, and orchards, between networks of irrigation flumes and ditches. The wide reaches of the Columbia River are visible. Today, the urban growth of the Tri-Cities metropolitan area has replaced the majority of former agricultural elements in this area. The tour passes along the Northern Pacific Irrigation Company Canal, formed in 1902 and operating as part of the larger Columbia Irrigation District.
