Where the Yakima river and the Naches conflux a high wall rises from the otherwise ‘€˜flat’€™ northern land. To the south one can see the valleys that lead directly to the Columbia river. A narrow path along this ‘€˜cliff’€™ has been in use for centuries. The Native Americans passed it yearly on their way to the Colombia salmon feast, leaving layer upon layer of pictographs in the rock.
