Great trip for seeing what Eastern Washington looks like because of the Ice Age Floods. We visited many places that I will want to return to and spend more time; it was a great introduction.

If you think you might be interested in what happened in the Pacific Northwest in prehistoric times, this could be the program for you, especially if you like to see traces on the land of what happened during the most recent Ice Age. I tried to learn some of the course content on my own but failed. The time I invested in this program greatly enhanced my understanding of this region, not only in the past but the present.
