In honor of this Saturday being World Water Day, I decided to find a water-themed photo for this Nature Nerd Wednesday... and what better photo than the beautiful one below of the newly-christened Official Waterfall of Washington State? Take a look at Palouse Falls:
Just yesterday, Governor Inslee's signature made official the designation of Palouse Falls as the State Waterfall. I have to admit, I wasn't convinced at first that this was the best choice for the state waterfall of Washington. Call me a West-side nature snob if you will, but I prefer my scenery a little greener. Washington is largely known for being lush, verdant, and covered with trees, and the scenery surrounding Palouse Falls, well... isn't.
That being said, after looking at some pretty amazing photos of Palouse Falls, I have to agree that this imposing 198-foot falls certainly is magnificent and well-worthy of being the Official Waterfall of Washington. This designation also calls attention to the diversity of landscapes and ecosystems in Washington State that many non-Washingtonians may not have been aware of. The Evergreen State isn't all lush and green... but that doesn't mean that it isn't all beautiful!
