Palouse falls

It was a pretty nice day on Saturday so we headed out on a little adventure. About 2 hours away is a place called Palouse Falls. If you didn't know it was there you would never know because its hidden behind many vast farm and open range land. But its gorgeous. And in the spring its awesome because it is a bit cooler in the summer it gets very very very hot.

here is a link to the national Parks official website:

the pictures aren't the best I broke the golden rule of taking pictures when you are not suppose to during the middle day but well thats when we were there. would have been awesome to say for sunset but it was a long day. We had a great picnic listening to the sound of the roaring falls.

this is a view from the observation spot. Note the outcropping of rocks to the left of the waterfall and from the left of that and up an area as well.

To get closer to the falls you have to go around the large rock that was to the left of the falls this is shown to the right here about 2 miles. and to get to this spot you have to climb down....

this !!!!!!

this is a view from the outcropping of rocks scene from the observation point which is seen here to the left on the cliff , well barely seen.
we got as close as the edge of the rocks

view of the out cropping of rocks up close
my husband thought this was the funniest sign and took a picture of it. but then he took a serious of shots at different telephotos of me taking pictures and hmmm I guess I was pretty close to that edge.

all in all great day of hiking and its so beautiful. Now to sort through the 250 photos that the two of us took to decide which ones we will actually print for the scrapbooks.

I love that "Falling can be deadly" sign. It is like the sign outside of a Lion Safari I went to once when I was younger. It said "trespassers will be eaten!"
