    Der größte Wasserfall der Welt

    September 30, 2017 in the United States

    ... Ohne Wasser.
    Hauptsächlich verbrachte ich den Tag in Spokane, was allerdings nicht sonderlich interessant ist, weswegen ich mir eine detaillierte Beschreibung spare.
    Auf dem Weg weiter Richtung Osten brachte mich ein Geocache auf einen Umweg, für den ich sehr dankbar bin. Ich habe die größten Wasserfälle der Welt gesehen...
    ...halt ohne Wasser. Das ist ausnahmsweise keinem Damm der USA u verdanken, sondern der Tatsache, dass er nur wenige Wochen existiert hat.
    Ein Wasserfall, der nur ein paar Wochen existiert, wie geht das? Das geht durch die letzte Eiszeit, in der gigantische Gletscher in Nordamerika viele Abflüsse blockiert haben und das Eis einen natürlichen Damm bildete. Brach dieser oder nahm das Wasser einen anderen Weg, so entstanden für kurze Zeit gigantische Flüsse. Diese erodierten die Landschaft und wir können heute sehen, was übrig ist.

    Half-Sun Travel Plaza

    August 19, 2017 in the United States

    Stopped at the nicest travel plaza for gas this morning. They had everything you could need from cowboy hats to snacks to food to wine tasting as well as very clean bathrooms. Excellent place to stop.

    The 14 miles preceding were unexpectedly educational. They listed the crop growing in each field behind the fences on the side of the highway. We saw beans, carrots, potatoes, alfalfa, field corn, sweet corn and green manure. It also informed us that Grant County, WA is the nation's highest producing county of potatoes. 🥔Read more

    August 23-28

    August 28 in the United States

    Thursday we traveled northeast over White Pass to O'Sullivan Sportsman Resort in Othello, Washington...the nicest campground so far with green grass, spacious sites, swimming pool and pickleball! https://campnative.com/campgrounds/usa/wa/othello/osullivan-sportsman-resort/campsite/253 The wildfire smoke has followed us. 🙁
    Saturday morning we provisioned at the most excellent Moses Lake Farmers Market followed by pizza and a flight of beer at Guido's Brick oven Pizza.
    Sunday we met some nice folks at the pickleball courts and got about four hours of play in. Finally... no smoke! 😄
    Monday morning we rode our bikes over to Potholes State Park. http://parks.state.wa.us/568/Potholes
    Spent the afternoon driving to Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park and surrounding region. Also saw some big horn sheep grazing in someone's yard. http://parks.state.wa.us/288/Ginkgo-Petrified-Forest
    Today we visited Ephrata and Soap Lake. The mud and minerals in the lake are supposed to have healing properties. I do know my feet were really soft after mucking around in the water and mud. https://www.thestranger.com/seattle/the-freaky-magic-of-soap-lake/Content?oid=16458482
    This is beautiful country with acres of corn, fruit trees and fields of sunflowers.
