Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park - Washington State Travel - YouTube
Dry Falls is one of the great geological wonders of North America. Carved by Ice Age floods that long ago disappeared, the former waterfall is now a stark cliff, 400 feet high and 3.5 miles wide. In its heyday, the waterfall was four times the size of Niagara Falls. Today it overlooks a desert oasis filled with lakes and abundant wildlife.
Check this out for a side of Washington State that is so different that it seems out of place, but once again it is spectacular...Sun Lakes State Park and Dry Falls, which is located near Coulee City, Washington.

WATERFALL ROAD TRIP | Columbia River Gorge, Oregon
Multnomah Falls has been on my bucket list since I saw pictures of it years ago on Instagram. It is cooler in person than in pictures.
On this little road trip, we headed east through Washington past some very scenic overlooks. We crossed the Bridge of the Gods into Oregon and explain where the name came from. Then we checked out the waterfall area of the Columbia River Gorge, stopping at Horsetail Falls, Multnomah Falls, and Latourell Falls.
We didn't have the time to hike to Oneonta Falls. Next time!

Beacon Rock State Park Profile
Beacon Rock State Park is located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Beacon Rock is the core of an ancient volcano. The mile-long trail to its summit provides outstanding panoramic views of the Columbia River Gorge. The park has over 20 miles of roads and trails open to hiking, mountain biking and equestrian use.
Beacon Rock was originally named by Lewis and Clark on their expedition to the Pacific Ocean on October 31, 1805. It was near Beacon Rock that they first measured tidal influences from the ocean on the Columbia River.
In 1811, Alexander Ross of the John Jacob Astor expedition called the rock Inoshoack Castle. The rock was known as Castle Rock until, in 1916, the United States Board of Geographic Names restored the name Beacon Rock.
Henry J. Biddle purchased the rock in order to build a trail to the top. The trail was built, and in 1935 his heirs turned the rock over to the state for use as a park. Additional development was done by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The park offers a one-mile interpretive trail at the Doetsch day-use area. The trail is ADA accessible. Additionally, there are interpretive signs about the Ice Age floods along the Beacon Rock Trail.
Beacon Rock offers opportunities for rock climbing, except where it interferes with nesting raptors (primarily on the south face). The presence of the falcon nest requires that the south face be closed to technical rock activity February 1 to mid-July annually; open the rest of the year. The east face is closed year-round due to environmental sensitivity.
The horse and bike trails are multi-use, with hikers allowed.
There is fishing on the lower Columbia River, below Bonneville Dam, for sturgeon, salmon, steelhead, bass and walleye.
The park is a popular site for weddings.
The park offers one boat launch, 916 feet of moorage dock and a boat pumpout.
A daily watercraft launching permit may be purchased at the park.
Annual permits also may be purchased at State Parks Headquarters in Olympia, at region offices, online, and at parks when staff is available.
There are six electrical hookup sites for boats at the moorage dock (these sites are closed during the winter).
There are two kitchen shelters with electricity in the park, plus two sheltered and 53 unsheltered picnic tables.
The lower picnic-area kitchen shelter is located at Hamilton Mountain Trailhead, available first come, first served. Water and power are available in the shelter.
The upper picnic-area kitchen shelter is available by reservation for groups of up to 100 people. Water and power are on-site. To reserve, call (888) CAMPOUT or (888) 226-7688.
The main campground has 26 tent sites. It is an older camp in a forested setting suited more for tents than RVs. There are a limited number of sites that accommodate RVs over 20 feet. This campground closes seasonally.
The Woodard Creek Campground has five utility sites that provide electricity, water and sewer. Follow signs off Highway 14 (near mile post 34) to the watercraft launch area; follow the signs to the RV campsites. The sites have a maximum length of 40 feet. These campsites are open year round.
The equestrian campsites, located at the equestrian trailhead, feature two standard sites that will accommodate a horse trailer each, a hi-line for horses, livestock water and a CXT vault toilet. There is no potable water and no electricity. Primitive camping fee applies. All campsites are first come, first served.
Winter facilities at the moorage area include 2 tent sites, one shower and one restroom. Overnight moorage and the boat launch are available year-round.

4K City Walks: Boise, Idaho virtual treadmill walking tour
We visited Boise Idaho for our latest 4K virtual treadmill walking tour. We start out in the hotel district and walk up towards the capitol building, into a nearby residential area with large houses, and then back through the restaurant district.
Boise is a bustling hip city with lots of places to stay, hotels, motels and AirBnBs. There are lots of great restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops. There are bird and Lime scooters all over the place.
We had a great time in this modern vibrant city.
Here are some facts from Wikipedia:
Boise is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Idaho, and is the county seat of Ada County. Located on the Boise River in southwestern Idaho, the population of Boise at the 2010 Census was 205,671, the 99th largest in the United States. Its estimated population in 2016 was 223,154.
Downtown Boise in the fall of 2013
The Boise-Nampa metropolitan area, also known as the Treasure Valley, includes five counties with a combined population of 709,845, the most populous metropolitan area in Idaho. It contains the state's three largest cities; Boise, Nampa, and Meridian. Boise is the 80th most populous metropolitan statistical area in the United States
Accounts differ regarding the origin of the name. One account credits Capt. B.L.E. Bonneville of the U.S. Army as its source. After trekking for weeks through dry and rough terrain, his exploration party reached an overlook with a view of the Boise River Valley. The place where they stood is called Bonneville Point, located on the Oregon Trail east of the city. According to the story, a French-speaking guide, overwhelmed by the sight of the verdant river, yelled Les bois! Les bois! (The woods! The woods!)—and the name stuck.
The name may instead derive from earlier mountain men, who named the river that flows through it. In the 1820s, French Canadian fur trappersset trap lines in the vicinity. Set in a high-desert area, the tree-lined valley of the Boise River became a distinct landmark, an oasis dominated by cottonwood trees. They called this La rivière boisée, which means the wooded river.
Main Street in 1911
The area was called Boise long before the establishment of Fort Boise by the federal government. The original Fort Boise was 40 miles (64 km) west, near Parma, down the Boise River near its confluence with the Snake River at the Oregon border. This private sector defense was erected by the Hudson's Bay Company in the 1830s. It was abandoned in the 1850s, but massacres along the Oregon Trail prompted the U.S. Army to re-establish a fort in the area in 1863 during the U.S. Civil War.
The new location was selected because it was near the intersection of the Oregon Trail with a major road connecting the Boise Basin (Idaho City) and the Owyhee (Silver City) mining areas, both of which were booming. During the mid-1860s, Idaho City was the largest city in the Northwest, and as a staging area, Fort Boise grew rapidly; Boise was incorporated as a city 156 years ago in 1863. The first capital of the Idaho Territory was Lewiston in north central Idaho, which in 1863 was the largest community, exceeding the populations of Olympia and Seattle, Washington Territory and Portland, Oregon combined. The original territory was larger than Texas. But following the creation of Montana Territory, Boise was made the territorial capital of a much reduced Idaho in a controversial decision which overturned a district court ruling by a one-vote majority in the territorial supreme court along geographic lines in 1866.
Boise has a semi-arid continental weather climate, with four distinct seasons. Boise experiences hot and dry summers with highs reaching 100 °F (38 °C) eight days in a typical year and 90 °F (32 °C) on 51 days. Yet because of the aridity, average diurnal temperature variation exceeds 30 °F (17 °C) in summer. Winters are moderately cold, with a December average of 30.7 °F (−0.7 °C), and lows falling to 0 °F (−18 °C) or below on around three nights per year. Snowfall averages 19 inches (48 cm), but typically falls in bouts of 3 inches (8 cm) or less. Spring and fall are mild. Autumn is brief; spring is gradual. Extremes have ranged from −28 °F (−33 °C) on January 16, 1888 to 111 °F (44 °C), as recently as July 19, 1960; temperatures have reached −25 °F (−32 °C) and 110 °F (43 °C) as recently as December 22, 1990 and June 28, 2015, respectively. Precipitation is usually infrequent and light, especially so during the summer months. It averages approximately 11 inches annually.

솔트레이크시티 서쪽에는 소금 평원이 있다. 100킬로미터쯤 달리니 설원처럼 흰 평원이 보이기 시작한다. 곧게 뻗은 직선 길이 100킬로미터 정도 이어져 핸들을 특별히 조작하지 않아도 될 정도다. 운전자들의 졸음 방지용으로 설치된 조형물도 보인다. 260 평방킬로미터의 광활한 소금 평원은 시베리아의 겨울 설원을 보는 것처럼 사람들로 하여금 순백의 아름다움에 빠져들게 한다. “많은 사람들이 여기를 운전해서 지나가는데 잘 보지 않고 잘 멈춰 서지도 않고 심지어 이해도 못하고요. 밖으로 나와 보면 지루하고 예쁘지도 않고 그렇게 생각할 텐데 보세요. 얼마나 아름다운지.“ 소금 평원은 과거 거대한 보너빌 호수의 물이 증발하면서 생겼다. 흘러드는 물의 양에 비해 증발되는 물의 양이 훨씬 많아 소금 결정물이 생기게 된다.

Bridge Of The Gods (Morning)
Take a look at the Bridge of the Gods, filmed in the morning. The Bridge of the Gods is a steel truss cantilever bridge that spans the Columbia River between Cascade Locks, Oregon and Washington. It is approximately 40 miles east of Portland, Oregon and 4 miles upriver from the Bonneville Dam. It currently serves as a toll bridge operated by the Port of Cascade Locks.
The bridge was built by the Wauna Toll Bridge Company of Walla Walla, Washington and opened in 1926 at a length of 1,127 feet. The higher river levels resulting from the construction of the Bonneville Dam required the bridge to be further elevated and extended to its current length of 1,856 feet.
The bridge is named after a famous geologic event also known as Bridge of the Gods (see below).
The Pacific Crest Trail crosses the Columbia River on the Bridge of the Gods and the lowest elevation of the trail is on this bridge.
This video was filmed during my move from Victorville, California to Post Falls, Idaho in October 2007.
Here's some info about the geologic event known as the Bridge of the Gods land bridge.
The original Bridge of the Gods was created during the eighteenth century by the Bonneville Slide, a major landslide which dammed the Columbia River, near present-day Cascade Locks, Oregon in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The river eventually removed it, but this event is remembered in local legends of the Native Americans as the Bridge of the Gods.
Approximately three hundred years ago a mountain to the north of the Columbia River underwent a large landslide, splitting in two and forming Table Mountain and Greenleaf Peak. The southern part slid down the mountain and blocked the Columbia Gorge close to modern-day Cascade Locks, Oregon forming a land bridge approximately 200 feet (60 m) high.
Early research concluded that the slide took place as early as 1100, but more recent research places it between 1670 and 1760, and suggests that it may have been linked to the 1700 Cascadia earthquake.
The following contains info about the famous Native American legend named Bridge of the Gods.
Native American lore contains numerous legends to explain the eruptions of Mount St. Helens and other volcanoes in the Cascade Volcanic Arc. The most famous of these is the Bridge of the Gods legend told by the Klickitats. In their tale, the chief of all the gods, Tyhee Saghalie and his two sons, Pahto (also called Klickitat) and Wy'east, traveled down the Columbia River from the Far North in search for a suitable area to settle.
They came upon an area that is now called The Dalles and thought they had never seen a land so beautiful. The sons quarreled over the land and to solve the dispute their father shot two arrows from his mighty bow; one to the north and the other to the south. Pahto followed the arrow to the north and settled there while Wy'east did the same for the arrow to the south. Saghalie then built Tanmahawis, the Bridge of the Gods, so his family could meet periodically.
When the two sons of the Saghalie fell in love with a beautiful maiden named Loowit, she could not choose between them. The two young chiefs fought over her, burying villages and forests in the process. The area was devastated and the earth shook so violently that the huge bridge fell into the river, creating the Cascades Rapids of the Columbia River Gorge.
For punishment, Saghalie struck down each of the lovers and transformed them into great mountains where they fell. Wy'east, with his head lifted in pride, became the volcano known today as Mount Hood and Pahto, with his head bent toward his fallen love, was turned into Mount Adams. The fair Loowit became Mount St. Helens, known to the Klickitats as Louwala-Clough which means smoking or fire mountain in their language (the Sahaptin called the mountain Loowit).
