Wild Music Of Falling Waters

Palouse Falls, Washington

An amazing place, appearing in the midst of dry scablands. It was originally called Aput Aput, meaning falling waters. This is the larger, lower falls, which drops 198 feet into a huge basalt canyon. We visited in the spring, when the water was flowing strongly. The water made me think of a pipe organ, and we enjoyed the music of the water while picnicking at the rim of the gorge. Taken with a long telephoto as the shadows began to move up the falls.
