I’m so glad the summer’s here so I can visit all my favorite outdoor places! This week I got to enjoy some sun and fun at the Wawawai canyon cliffs, a unique outcropping of rocks on the Snake River that are perfecting for relaxing by the water in the afternoon. When the weather gets warm enough, college students and locals flock here to do some extreme cliff jumping! It’s a fun place that is very unique on the Palouse. Being surrounded by wheat fields and farms, sometimes we crave the water!
I saw fish jumping, seagulls calling and lazy fishermen in the river today. There’s even a helicopter landing pad here!
The cliffs are awesome during the day, awesome with friends and awesome at night! You can build fires and roast marshmallows; there’s something very “Free People” and hippie about it, all you want to do is hang out in a sweater and shorts all night.
The Cliffs are great because each rock offers a private cozy corner to hang out with friends; you can jump in the water any time you get too hot.
I’ve been coming here for almost half a decade! I love small little patches of perfection that are the perfect weekend getaway. Do you have any special places you just keep coming back to?
