An era of dams on Washington’s Elwha River has officially ended. Watch the final blast of the 210-foot high Glines Canyon Dam and see what freedom looks like.

This was a fast edit, and I will be uploading a longer version of this video soon. Learn more about the Elwha restoration project the film’s website, “Return of the River” elwhafilm.com
