Located three miles north of the town of Entiat along the shore of the Columbia River, you’ll find remnants of the Ribbon Cliff landslide. The personal recollections collected from local newspaper archives are a record of a night of horror during and after the landslide on the memorable night of December 14, 1872. Geologists have described this as the largest earthquake in the northwest in recorded history and some reports credit it with a near total blockage of the Columbia River. The State Highway Department has created a small pullout and posted a display explaining what transpired here. While you are at the foot of the slide site, the most impressive and panoramic view can be seen from the opposite shore of the Columbia River at Daroga State Park.
