#63285: The Lower Grand Coulee

The Lower Grand Coulee has many natural lakes and smaller year round and seasonal (vernal) ponds. Coulee wallls reflect in the water and rare rains bring stunning rainbows contrasting sharply with the basalt cliffs. At the north end lake waters are fresh - Blue Lake is home to many rainbow trout and attracts large numbers of loons and grebes. At the south end Lake Lenore is very alkaline hosting brine shrimp and salamanders and Lanonton trout, creating a rich source of food for a variety of birds.
