Dry Falls

It was a gorgeous summer morning when we drove past Dry Falls, Washington last week. It is a really interesting place believed to be formed when a huge amount of ice melted, water backed up behind an ice dam, and then when the dam broke, water flowed forcefully everywhere, including through this dry falls and canyon.

There were people in canoes and kayaks down in the water. I'm not sure how they got there. They looked like tiny dots from up at the view point. Maybe we will have to try doing that sometime.

2 bouquets of wildflowers (Comment here):

So beautiful! I've always loved this area. It was 'on our journey to Grandma's house' so we went past it several times a year and always stopped. :)

I need to visit that place. So many fantastic scenes so close to home... and never have I been.
