Challenge! Guess What and Where

Location
Salish Sea
This thread was popular over on "that other forum" so I thought it might be fun here. People are going places again. Something for us Northern Hemisphere-ers in the dark days.

The idea is to post a photo of a place and people try to guess the location and/or what it is (see thread title). First answer that satisfies the original poster gets to post the next photo. Hints should be given to keep things moving along. Bonus points for getting it right without google or looking at the exif (but of course the bonus points aren't good for anything but bragging rights anyway) This doesn't mean that you can't use google. You can lean a lot from google. If the winner doesn't have a photo to post right away then they can open it up for anyone to jump in and post one.

OK I'll start it off with this one which should be pretty easy.

I don't have many recognizable places in my photos - but this one definitely should be :)
(same corner of the world as the previous photo - don't think this needs more hints really :) )

I found this interesting as I am currently reading The Boys in the Boat, which tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar rowing crew and their epic quest for gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. A number of the oarsmen spent vacation time working on the dam construction and the book has excellent descriptions of the strenuous physical work involved and life in the construction town of Coulee.
