Palouse River & Snake River

  • Aboard the National Geographic Quest
  • Pacific Northwest

At dawn on his glorious autumn morning we are dropping anchor at the confluence of the Snake and Palouse Rivers. Many beautiful adventures are in store for us here. Giant floods that occurred toward the end of the Ice Age roared across a large area of eastern Washington, washing away the topsoil and ripping into the layers of Columbia River basalts that covered the land as far as six million years ago. A result of these astonishing floods was the spectacular Palouse River Canyon and Palouse Falls.
