Two Sisters Basalt Pillars on the Columbia River

February 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

It's a just short hike on a rough trail to a fantastic landscape opportunity. If you are driving near the Tri Cities in eastern Washington, and the light is good, it's worth visiting the Two Sisters basalt formation on HW 730 along the Columbia River near Wallula, WA. Be prepared. The site is undeveloped, there are no restrooms or drinking water, just a parking area where the steep trail starts.  I shot this site for the first time in late afternoon and early evening. You can circumnavigate the Two Sisters, looking for the right angle and lighting. Meander south of the Pillars and there's a fine view of the Wallula Gap. I'll be back many times, most certainly in the early morning.
