Washtucna is a small town in Adams County named after a Palouse Native American chief. It's located 17 miles away from Palouse Falls. I called the town of Washtucna and chatted with Teresa. She filled me in on an awesome roadside attraction, That NW Bus.

The park offers three distinct views of the falls. The lower viewpoint provides a direct view; it is reached by a set of steps from the main day-use area adjacent to the parking lot. The second, at the end of a paved interpretive path, tells the story of the secluded canyon.

The Lasting Legacy Wildlife Museum is a must see experience, in Ritzville.
