Words arenít adequate to sufficiently describe the powerful forces of flowing water. But here in eastern Washington the scablands of Cheney-Palouse are a great example of what a massive flood will do. One of the catastrophic ice age events saw incredible amounts of water sweep across the tilted surface of the Palouse, strip away hundreds of feet of topsoil and carve up layers of ancient basalt, creating coulees and steep-walled canyons.
