Plug-In North Central Washington welcomes EV drivers to tour the fantastic geologic imprints left by the Ice Age Floods. Imagine a raging flood so powerful that towering waves studded with glacial icebergs toss giant boulders downstream like pebbles, and the landscape is irreversibly altered as eroded soil is carried more than 500 miles to the ocean.
It might sound like a scene from a Hollywood movie – but it’s real. And it happened in the Wenatchee Valley between 13,000 and 18,000 years ago, as water from glacial Lake Missoula raged across the landscape at 65 miles-per-hour when the ice dam blocking its path gave way to pressure, releasing the violent deluge.
