Flying Adventure: Springtime at Palouse Falls


This area, about 38 nautical miles from home, is part of the famous, Ice Age Missoula Flood plain. Millions of years ago, an ice dam broke. Raging water coursed through thousands of miles in what's now Montana, Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington. You can see how the flood gouged out the land. It didn't leave much topsoil, and so nothing much grows in the area.
