If you’re looking for a site in Washington state that has breathtaking views and impressive history, make a point to stop and see the Dry Falls in the Grand Coulee. This scenic outdoor spot is the result of the Ice Age floods of around 15,000 years ago and one of the most jaw-dropping natural wonders to visit in the state.

During the Ice Age, the Dry Falls was the site of an active waterfall. Nowadays, the landscape is a mixture of basalt, plunge pools, and groundwater-fed lakes. It’s also home to local wildlife and a popular destination for locals and tourists.

To set out on your adventure and explore the Dry Falls, head to the visitor center at 35661 HWY 17 North Coulee City in Washington. It’s about a three-hour drive on I-90 east from Seattle to reach this scenic outdoor spot.

When you’re ready to be wowed by Dry Falls, visit the Washington State Parks website for more information to help you plan your visit.
