Recess of Dry Falls

Washington State University Libraries

Field Value
Title Recess of Dry Falls
Description Here stands two of the five largest recesses in the frowning scarp of Dry Falls, over whose three and a half mile brink roared and thundered one of the greatest water falls of all geological history. It was three times as wide as the greatest existing cataract, Victoria Falls in Africa. The only known falls to exceed it was the one that retreated to extinction as it cut the upper Grand Coulee. Only the now-placid waters of Deep and Perch Lakes nestle in the plunge pools ground out of the... Extinct Glacial Waterfall on the Columbia River.
