Palouse Falls by Raymaker Palouse Falls by Raymaker
The Palouse River cuts through the Columbia Basalt, plunging 180 feet into the canyon. On April 21, 2009, Tyler Bradt ran the falls in a kayak setting an unofficial world record for the highest waterfall run. The falls almost looks small from this perspective, but people sun bathing at top of the falls look like ants. This is truly an awe-inspiring scene!

Those canyon walls don't look like they've been carved naturally, is this an old quarry?

This is real deal. This area is part of the Channeled Scablands of eastern Washington. Its some really interesting geology, if you like that sort of thing (I do!).

I've been there several times and seen quite a few people attempt shots. This is definitely my favorite thus far. How I miss home in Eastern WA!

Hey thanks! Eastern WA is such a unique place, so wildly different than the west side.
