Amazing time lapse video of the Condit Dam removal and lake draining

Here’s a better look from National Geographic that shows what happened after that initial rush of water. It’s incredible to see disappearance of Northwestern Lake and the rebirth of a river channel. As you’ll see, though, there’s a long way to go before the stretch above the dam looks anything like a natural river.
