Of course we did – of course we made a day trip over to see Palouse Falls. It is the State Waterfall, after all, and is also among the last active waterfalls on the Ice Age floods path.

The park’s website notes that it is a “remote recreational experience.” The park’s website is not wrong.

A fan of the church

I’ve written posts in the past about my interest in seeing the nuts-and-bolts of things, the things that make it work or that hold it together. And I can promise you that I will always take a picture of a floor fan inside a church.

Door Number Three

I love to be the only person in a church, and if I’m there at the time of day with sunlight slants through stained glass windows, that’s a nice bonus. I was particularly fond of the way the crosses over the doors got progressively lighter.

And, you may want to know that St. Gall is the patron saint of birds and geese and Switzerland.

First Consecrated

Two important things, and one that’s silly:

  1. This was the first Roman Catholic church consecrated in the state of Washington;
  2. When I was there, a little sign on the door said the place had just been varnished and the doors were locked for another couple of days; and
  3. That little puff of dust is from a passing car, a car which for no reason at all I assumed was full of nuns.

Many eaves and an orb

You know by now that “walk around back” is a thing that I will almost always do when I’m out with my camera. I also look up, which is how I found this nice conglomeration of angles and lines.
