Need a study break? Looking for a view other than the bookshelves in Penrose library? Grab some friends and head up to Palouse Falls, one of the most beautiful remnants of a glacial flood in the world–or, at least, in the state of Washington. Palouse Falls State Park is only a 45 minute drive north of campus and is a fabulous destination for those seeking not only a glimpse of natural beauty, but also a heck of a good workout. My section mates and I rolled out here for a 3 hour hike last weekend and got to see a perfectly full rainbow, roaring waterfalls, and a gorgeous sunset at the conclusion of our hike. Here are some photos I snapped along the way to get you falling for the falls!

Hikes always allow time to mess around.
