Palouse Falls, inside the canyon hiking to the top of the waterfall. So much to explore.

Palouse Falls by @timcanfieldphotography "Palouse Falls State Park is a 105-acre Washington state park in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington, USA. It is named for the 200-foot Palouse Falls on the Palouse River, which are part of the park. The park contains displays explaining the region's unique geology as well as its historical ties: the Palouse Indians and the Mullan Road both took advantage of the easy access to the plateau in the vicinity of the falls.The Palouse River runs through a narrow cataract and drops 200 feet to a churning bowl. From there, the current moves swiftly, through a winding gorge of columnar basalt, to its southern end at the mighty Snake River.
Carved more than 13,000 years ago, Palouse Falls is among the last active waterfalls on the Ice Age floods path. This natural wonder was named Washington’s state waterfall in 2014, when the state Legislature passed a bill written by local schoolchildren, who advocated for the designation.

The park offers three distinct views of the falls. The lower viewpoint provides a direct view; it is reached by a set of steps from the main day-use area adjacent to the parking lot. The second, at the end of a paved interpretive path, tells the story of the secluded canyon. Both the interpretive path and gravel secondary parking area lead to the third and highest viewpoint, the Fryxell Overlook, offering panoramic views of the falls and Palouse River Canyon.
Please follow Leave No Trace principles, and experience this viewshed from the designated, developed areas."

Throwback to my Labor Day adventure because this shot is way nicer than the one from my iPhone 📷
Rather be exploring basalt columns and chasing waterfalls, this place was incredible.
