FINALLY…Dry Falls State Park….
Can you imagine seeing a site of glacial ice reaching over 10,000 feet high? Now imagine having a river blocked off and forming a huge lake. Imagine having this lake “lift” this ice, breaking it and moving it all down “stream” at a speed over 60 miles an hour. This ice and water mass is now over 2,000 feet high and moving from what is now Montana and heading toward the Pacific Ocean. All this happened about 18,000 years ago and it happened several times at this same area. One of the outcomes of this “movement” was the creation of what were the largest and widest waterfalls in the world. It is 2 ½ times higher and 5 times wider than Niagara Falls. Overall it was 400 feet high and 3 ½ miles wide. Today there is no water flowing over the falls, but the water that sits below is but a small reminder of the beauty and wonder that must have been.
