#63272: The Drumheller Channels

Wigeon Lake in the Drumheller Channels is just one of many lakes that dot this National Natural Landmark. Additionally, Crab Creek, the longest creek in Washington, winds its way through the area. The Drummheller Channels are an example of 'butte and basin' scabland, an erosional landscape characterized by hundreds of isolated steep sided hills surrounded by a braided network of channels or coulees. The Ice Age Flood waters left this area a rugged jumble of cliffs, canyons, lakes and remnants of ancient lava flows.
