My husband wanted to see this ,and I did not care one way or another so I went a head and made a point to go for him.

WOW! This place is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice. This is really as impressive as the grand canyon. Be sure you stop at the visitor center .While we were there there was a dust storm, which they said was not common .

When we pulled into the visitor center the view was phenomenal! Then minutes later we could see nothing but red dust ,it was really cool after about 45 minutes the storm passed. Being stuck there was not bad as there were food carts ,and the visitor center has a lot to look at .
We loved this place.
if I had very small children or pets I would literally keep them on a leash as the cliffs are really scary and I could imagine losing one over the side!

Stopped at this attraction enroute to the Coulee Dam. I think this location was more impressive then the dam. The history behind these falls is astounding! Can you imagine if these falls were still in existence today?? Great parking area and information centre. The views are impressive no matter where you are, I especially like the little overhanging area. Don't miss this attraction if you're anywhere close...

If you haven't seen this before, it's a must to see. The videos they have for sale in the gift shop are available on YouTube, too.

A drive north of Moses Lake, WA took us through the Pot Holes States Park and to the Dry Falls which would dwarf Niagara Falls if it were still active. We learned that the Falls occurred during the Ice Age when Glacier Lake Missoula began to melt and moved towards the sea. It totally blocked portions of the Columbia River. A very interesting visit about what formed the landscape in Eastern Washington.

This is a well done interpretive center that does a fantastic job providing history of how the great floods carved out a large swath of the state. The views from the center are fantastic and there's even a small bistro outside that provides limited food and beverages. Definitely worth the stop to educate yourself and take a break from driving.
