Took us forever to reach Palouse Falls from Seattle. Well technically, not forever more like 4 hours. The one thing that caught my eye was how the landscape changes from Seattle to Eastern Washington. For 4 hours i was experiencing different landscape sceneries and different climates.
After hours of driving we got to Palouse Falls! The area around the falls was barren, no signs of vegetation or anything. After researching, it turns out that this area was part of the Channeled Scablands created by the Missoula Flood at the end of the last ice age. It’s amazing that you can actually read history by looking at the landscape in this area. There’s a series of Coulees and pinnacles and rock benches all created by the flood. It’s beautiful and you feel like an ant standing in this area.
Things we did we shouldn’t have done during this road trip:
- We all peed in the middle of no where, not a good role model for Daniel. However it was a stretch of 100 miles with no civilization in site. Hence the nature was our only Toilet.
- We ate McDonald and it felt so good.
- We forgot to bring water bottles for the hikes, hence we had to listen to Daniel whining all the way to the falls.
Until the next hike!
