      Dry Falls of Washington      
30 Miles SW of Grand Coulee Dam


Looking east, here at the Dry Falls Visitors Center, our mouths dropped open. Geologists say that what we are seeing are the remains of the largest waterfall on earth.  This photo shows only a portion of that waterfall.

It is said that as the last ice age was thawing, catastrophic flooding covered much of Eastern Washington.  These falls began 20 miles south of here.  As the rocks eroded, a vast canyon was created.  The erosion finally stopped here, leaving this breath-taking scene.  These lakes and others south of this spot comprise Sun Lakes State Park, enjoyed today by fishermen and others who want to bask in these awesome surroundings.


After a night in the spacious Sun Lakes State Park Campground, we visited this lakeshore and felt ourselves being dwarfed by the whole scene.


The two photos above, the two below, and the eight geese a flying (below), were taken from the same spot.  This is one of those places where you can just stand still while the evidence of God clearly surrounds you.








                                       
As we departed from this beautiful spot in the desert, one more photo taken from the same angle as the first produces a very different mood in the mid-morning shadows.

To fully enjoy these Dry Falls, we recommend staying overnight.  Sun Lakes State Park campground, with ample tree shade is a very pleasant place to while a way a few hours... or even days.
