Snake River and Palouse River and Falls

Sep 24, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird

We began the morning on the Columbia River, but soon made the turn onto the Snake River. From there we transited through both Ice Harbor and Lower Monumental Dams before the crew served us lunch on the upper deck. The afternoon allowed us views of the cliffs along the Palouse River from river level as we cruised by in our landing crafts and kayaks. We also traveled by coach to the overlook to view the 180-foot Palouse Falls, and some of us hiked along a path to see the falls from different angles.
