Web: www.byways.org/browse/byways/54772/ Description:The entire corridor consists of a series of coulees, or dry canyons, which were shaped by the rushing torrents released when a 2000-foot natural ice dam melted in Montana. This Ice Age flood also left behind boulders, gravel bars and sand dunes, and carved out 900-foot basalt cliffs. Areas of interest include: Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, the Grand Coulee Dam, the Colville Tribal Museum, Dry Falls (the remains of a waterfall once ten times the size of Niagara Falls), Soap Lake, Moses Lake Museum & Art Center, and Columbia National Wildlife Refuge.
Legth: 150 miles. Start/Endpoint: Located in north-central Washington, byway runs north/south from Omak along parts of three highway routes (SR 155, US 2 and SR 17) to Othello. Time to Allow: 3.5 hours. Designation/Year: National Scenic Byway (2005).
