DRY FALLS & THE ICE AGE FLOODS

Between 14,000 and 20,000 years ago, a series of cataclysmic ice age floods cut a swath through north central Washington all the way to the Pacific Ocean. These floods stripped away the soil leaving only the stark walls of basalt and massive "erratic" boulders in their wake. Visit the Dry Falls Interpretive Center (pictured) to understand the full impact.
