This is one of the great geological wonders of North America. Carved by Ice Age floods that long ago disappeared, the former waterfall is now a stark cliff, 400 feet high and 3.5 miles wide.
In its heyday, the waterfall was four times the size of Niagara Falls. Today, it overlooks a desert oasis filled with tiny lakes and wildlife. Exhibits at Dry Falls Visitor Center offer many opportunities for you to learn about this unusual landscape.
