Thats pretty heavy discharge for Palouse Falls. The only time I have seen it bigger was in Feb. 1996 when the Palouse River was having a 250 year flood event.
That is a great insight as to the volume. I have seen it before but it was in February during a cold spell. Thanks for your input.
That is really cool looking. Great photo!
Thank you Theron. I wish this picture could capture the sound as well.
I visited the falls about 20 years ago with my friend, who was living in Walla Walla at the time. I've always remembered the falls, but not their name. An amazing place.
Thanks Lisae....yeah, to "find" that in the middle of nowhere is great stuff. I was amazed by this waterfall the first time I saw it last year. I had to go back again and will again next year....
for 4 years and I never visited those falls. I missed out!
You are not the lone ranger. It took me almost 30 years to get out to see the falls last year.
I didn't realize what I had been missing.
like the water is coming from nowhere! pretty cool.
It does doesn't it. The river makes a 90 bend before it goes over the falls. Thanks !!!
It´s incredible!. Thanks for sharing! I hope to see it with my own eyes some day!. It´s worth it!
the water looks as if it's coming out of nowhere.
The river takes a 90 degree turn and drops over, creating that effect. There was a young Montana kid who went over in a kayak. See here for LINK that has pics.
A very good spot you chose to photograph this waterfall - puts the Iffigen Falls into a rather "miniscule" position...:-)
Thank you Eric, I appreciate your nice comments. Palouse Falls is an unexpected sight in the middle of the eastern Washington desert country.
I doubt very many people across the USA know of these falls.
There's a lot of people in eastern washington who haven't heard of the falls. I was one of them for 30 years, much to my regret.
it really is spectacular.
