These floods SUBMERGED the Umatilla Valley in HUNDREDS of feet of water (and brought its soils)

New to this series? Start the Lake Missoula story here on NewsBreak! The Umatilla Valley, a large, beautiful section of flat land before the narrows of the Columbia Gorge, was once the site of a temporary lake called Lake Condon, made of the backed up waters of Lake Missoula as it powered through the Columbia Gorge. Much of its agriculture owes its productivity to soils stripped from Washington by the floods and left on the lake floor before the waters moved away.

For much of my life, I've had an immense fascination for the natural world and its inhabitants. This fascination has always driven me to wonder to share those feelings of wonder with other people. "Wonderlust" was the name I gave to that feeling (A name given to my YouTube channel as well: ). Here, I hope to bring to you improved understanding and appreciation for nature in its many forms across the world, and the human history that has existed in those places. I film my travels in a highly cinematic style, and with corresponding narration aim to both educate on the history of these places and inspire wonder for the astonishing aspects of the natural world. While here, and in your own journeys, wander in wonder.
