Palouse River and Palouse Falls, Washington

Sep 28, 2017 - National Geographic Sea Bird

We are elated to find ourselves in the vicinity of a good time! A morning of kayaking or naturalist lead expedition landing craft tours in the fresh air is the perfect way to explore this basalt canyon. The river becomes too shallow to venture to the falls on our small boats, so we venture by coach to the beautiful cataract just a few miles upriver. In the afternoon, we pass through a number of locks as we head toward tomorrow’s destination.

About the Author

Sarah Keefer


Sarah’s fondest memories of nature are experiences she’s shared with friends—especially when those experiences involve spotting wildlife from the bow of a ship! She’s captivated by the wonders of the natural world, and it was the lure of expansive wilderness and exotic destinations that inspired her to study wildlife biology at both the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the University of Hawai’i Honolulu. Sarah was first partial to mammalian studies, and it wasn’t until her first season as a field naturalist in Southeast Alaska that she began to truly appreciate watching birds and what they could teach us about patience, integrity, and hope.
