Deryl and Debra Nickles of East Wenatchee and their Australian shepherd, Roper, hunt for treasures along the inlet at Crescent Bar. The Grant County PUD has dropped the reservoir behind Wanapum Dam to a historic low while crews and consultants examine a large crack discovered in one of the dam's support pillars. The draw-down has exposed wide expanses of Columbia River beach, normally submerged.
