Featured File name Description (Click on the thumbnail pics to see full-sized image)
Dry Falls, Washington Dry Falls The Columbia Plateau is a vast region of horizontal basalt flows covering the eastern part of Washington and Oregon and a corner of northeastern California (where it is known as the Modoc Plateau. The lavas erupted between 17 and 6 million years ago. At Dry Falls State Park in Washington, the ice age Spokane Floods carved a gorge and waterfall in a matter of hours. The walls of the gorge expose the basalt flows.
