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