The lower portion of Sun Lakes State Park, WA. A group camp is prominently visible near the center, but the main campground is in the trees beyond and left. We're in the Grand Coulee here, a canyon dug by Ice Age floods when Glacial Lake Missoula's ice dam failed. The cliffs on either side stand about 300 feet above the lakes. The coulee still collect more water than the plateau above, making it an oasis in a region that receives only about 13 inches (335mm) of precipitation per year. Across the distant plateau you can see the powerlines from Grand Coulee Dam.
