Washington, United States.
Palouse Falls are approximately 200 ft in height. The canyon is carved through multiple layers of flood basalts.
From the Washington State Parks web site: According to a story of the Palouse tribe, the Palouse River once flowed smoothly into Snake River. But four giant brothers, in pursuit of a mythic creature called Big Beaver, speared the great creature five times. Each time Big Beaver was wounded, he gouged the canyon walls, causing the river to bend and change. The fifth time he was speared, he fought the brothers valiantly and tore out a huge canyon. The river tumbled over a cliff at this point to become Palouse Falls. The jagged canyon walls show the deep marks of Big Beaver’s claws.
