    Superb video Brian and thank you VERY much for posting it!
    FYI this location would be just south and across the Columbia River from Wishram, WA.
    Google maps shows this as a very small place called "Celilo Village".
    Here is a "TinyURL" link to the Google Map showing this location in the center:
