Palouse River

Apr 29, 2019 - National Geographic Quest


We woke up to a gorgeous morning at the mouth of the Palouse River, a tributary of the Snake river. Some of us went to the spectacular Palouse Falls, which cascade 198 feet into the basalt canyon beneath. Others went on a Zodiac cruise up the Palouse River, where we saw the beautiful surrounding canyon and wildlife, including golden eagles, prairie falcons, and red-tailed hawks. Still others chose to spend the morning kayaking. In the afternoon, naturalist Grace Winer gave an immersive presentation on local birds in the area.
