Oh my gosh I am so proud of John!
One of the projects John has been working on for years is placing interpretive panels about the Ice Age Floods on the Columbia Plateau Trail. Over the years there have been many ups and downs for this project. Thankfully this summer everything came together and the panels were put in place this past week.
Yesterday we hiked out to check out the panels. I keep telling John it is a sign of true love that I hiked in 106 degree weather on asphalt to check them out. Truly I am just so dang proud of him.
John never let go of his vision and dream of having the panels in place. He is so excited to share the Ice Age Floods with visitors and help everyone understand how our region was impacted by the floods.
Every time we visit the trails I am amazed at how our region was created and the impact of the floods.
The interpretive panels are approximately a quarter mile from the Fish Lake Trailhead near Cheney.
The panels help share information on how the Ice Age Floods created the landscape we see beyond the panels. There was a double waterfall which caused the two lobes in the lake behind the panels.
Columnar Basalt Rocks were placed near the panels so there is a great seating area. The rocks are placed so there is a gorgeous view over Fish Lake.
John was really excited to shoot this video and share a bit of information on the Ice Age Floods.
