So what were the last two posts?  They were within one of the cooling towers of the former Satsop Power Plant apart of the Washington Public Power Supply System.  The goal of the project was to bring online a nuclear power plant but it, but it stopped construction in the middle of it.  In total, it brought on 2 of 5 plants across the state.  Today, it’s known as the Satsop Development Park.  Seeing a cooling tower within 100 feet of yourself is pretty dam amazing.  It just towers above you.  It was blocking mid-day sunshine as you can see.
