The mighty Columbia River, which eventually empties into the Pacific Ocean between Oregon and Washington, begins in the Columbia Valley on the west side of the British Columbia Rockies. The headwaters of the Columbia are considered to be Columbia Lake at the south end of the valley. The river then flows north through Windermere Lake, past Golden and eventually turns south just before the Mica Dam, the first of the many dams that have tamed the river.
