Monday’s Mystery

At a recent conference in Vancouver, Washington, the theme was “Layers of History” and meaning along the final hundred miles or so of the Columbia River. The first session addressed The Great Ice Age Floods (also known as the Missoula Floods) and I learned just how the cataracts in the coulee areas of central Washington were carved or created. So the mystery question today for you is: HOW were the Dry Falls created? By what term is the process known?  (You perhaps have been to the Dry Falls State Park when going on Hwy 2 between Spokane and Wenatchee?)

And a double delicious WSGS cupcake to Sonji Rutan of the Eastern Washington Gen Society in Spokane. Here’s her comment about Black Pudding:  Isn’t this the same as ‘blood pudding’? I’ve tried it and don’t care for it, but then today’s pallets are perhaps more sophisticated or spoiled then our ancestors.

The above picture may look a teeny bit enticing but NOWAY today. Black Pudding as made from animal blood, mixed with animal fat and then flour, oats, wheat, or whatever grain-thickening they had.

    They were created during the Breitz Floods and are part of the Channeled Scablands.

    Thanks for the cupcake! Dry Falls created by multiple ice dam breaks in Missoula. Higher and wider with more water volume than Niagara Falls by more than 2 times.

    Now I’ve got one for you! For what or whom was Pe Ell WA named and how?
