The Reach
The Eastern Ice Age Floods Scablands

Because of this tract's close proximity to the Palouse country of eastern Washington, the scablands of this area feature many streamlined loess islands separated by scablands and coulees. No major highways traverse this tour's route, so participants will view sights known by the few local residents, but very few travelers.

Features include loess islands, flood deposits at least 780,000 years old, Rock Lake, Big Cove Coulee and more. We will travel to Ritzville to begin the tour, then eastward to Palouse country and lunch at the little town of St. John. The afternoon will take us south and westward to Washtucna and back to the REACH. 

Please confirm by July 27th
