No matter how much a person loves the place she lives, I think it’s always good to have a change of scenery. Yesterday Marcy and I and our dogs headed south to explore some of the coulee country spread across northern Douglas and Grant Counties. We enjoyed vast views across the flat wheat land of the Waterville Plateau with constantly changing weather conditions from sun breaks to various kinds of clouds and scattered rain showers. And then there were the geologic wonders of the water-carved coulees and amazing Dry Falls, left behind by the Ice Age Floods that occurred and reoccurred thousands of years ago.

It was a good day.


  1. My dad wanted to live on the eastside in the worst way; he was a 30-year career meteorologist and I think he really enjoyed the wide open prairie look…originally from Oklahoma. But my mom hated the constant wind, so they visited but stayed in Olympia. I really need to visit this area.

    • Saying that this region has constant wind is like saying that Olympia has constant rain! 🙂
