    I recently visited Eastern Washington. So here is a picture blog of the places that took my breath away.

    Have you ever been mesmerized by enormity of Niagara Falls? Here is an ice age water fall ten times the size of Niagara. The largest water fall that ever existed in the history but has dried now.  “The dry falls” is part of Sun Lakes State Park.

    EW 1

    To add to it were fascinating views along the drive.
    Driving east we went to Steptoe Butte State park. This park had stark, dramatic beauty with the panoramic view of surrounding farmlands, the Blue Mountains, and other neighboring ranges and peaks. From the top of the butte, the eye can see 200 miles, 360 degree.

    EW 2
     Next on our itinerary was Palouse Falls State Park. Palouse Falls is among the most beautiful water falls Washington State has.

    EW 3

    Charming town of Walla Walla was our stop after this. Farmer’s market, BMX track, winery and exquisite restaurants Walla Walla has a lot to offer.

    EW 4 EW 5

     

     

     

    Surrounded by magnificent wheat fields and adding to the sight are giant windmills.

    EW 6 EW 7

     

     

     

     

    Time flew quickly and now that I think about it I want to spend much more time at each of these places. No camera can do justice to the grandiose of Eastern Washington.
