Description

The Ancient Lakes of the Columbia Valley is an area which lies on the western edge of the Columbia Basin near the town of Quincy in Washington State. Lying between the Beezley Hills to the North and the Frenchman Hills to the south, the region was severely impacted by the immense water flows of the Missoula floods. The scouring effect of the waters stripped the top soils down to the basalt and scoured out canyons referred to locally as "coulees" which are prominent features.
