Falling Off the Edge

The Falls

Water pours over a cliff and falls 200 feet into the pool below.

In the middle of infinite farmland a valley cuts sternly through rocky terrain. 12 different periods of melting striated 400 feet of cliff that now towers above the rivers where Washington and Oregon meet Idaho. This, some miles northwest of there, is Palouse Falls. It’s river, by the same name, slithers through the deep valley until it dumps into the Snake River.

The entire landscape in the eastern part of Washington holds exceptional beauty, intrigue and is uniqueness. It’s definitely worth a long road trip with an adventurous spirit and a wide, sharp eye.

  1. I really like the juxtaposition of the falls with the farm land to kind of show the progress of water on its journey. Great pics. Ed
