Day Hike at Palouse Falls

The Palouse Falls is a hidden gem in the middle of farm country. You’d never know it was there unless looking for it. The Missoula Floods carved the falls and other geographical features in Washington. During the last ice age a glacier blocked a river in Montana and when the ice receded the water flooded across Idaho and Washington at a force that’s hard to imagine. It happened over and over, cutting huge swaths in the land. That’s why there are random large boulders in the middle of barren land in the eastern part of the state.

On the drive to Palouse Falls Aaron and I made a detour to see the wind farm he helped develop when he worked at Puget Sound Energy.  It’s impressive.
