The Drumheller Channels In Washington’s Quincy-Columbia Basin Look Like Something From Another Planet

Washington’s Columbia Basin is highly underrated. It might seem as if there’s not much to see in the south-central part of the state, but it’s actually full of a rugged, understated beauty you won’t see anywhere else. And if you happen to stumble upon the Drumheller Channels National Natural Landmark, it’s safe to say you’ll have an experience that’s out of this world… or at least, you might think you’ve left the planet. Take a closer look at this landscape.
