We also visited Palouse Falls, another site created during the Ice Age floods. Here a waterfall appears to emerge from the rock and cascades almost 200 feet into a round, basalt plunge pool. A state park provides spectacular viewpoints.

We happened upon the Dahmen Barn in Uniontown with its iconic wheel fence. This former dairy barn is now an artisan center designed to showcase the work of local artists and to bring fine and folk art to the public. The wheel fence was begun in the 1950s as a folk art project and is still evolving. The fence is now comprised of more than 1,000 wheels. We visited the artist’s studios and couldn’t help but leave with a few small items.
We arrived in Clarkston and checked into a campground on the Snake River. We snagged a waterfront site that had just become available on the Memorial Day weekend. Unfortunately it started to rain so we couldn’t enjoy the setting as much as we would have liked.
