I just wanted to thank you for the “Carved in Cataclysm” feature in Pacific Northwest (Sept. 30). Seeing Dry Falls when I was a kid just staggered me (I have goose bumps as I write this). The thought of it was just jaw-dropping. I first heard of the floods while staying at Skamania Lodge about eight years ago, and couldn’t believe that I’d never heard of it before. How could I have missed all of this?

I think that if I’d seen this article when I was in fourth grade, I might have found a career.

Steve Ringman’s photography was just superb. The whole package was so good that I almost forgot about Paul Dorpat’s “Now & Then,” usually the first thing that I go to when I get the Sunday paper.

The article in the Sept. 30 issue of Pacific Northwest magazine (“Carved in Cataclysm”) is the best article I’ve read in nearly 15 years of reading The Seattle Times. My compliments to author William Dietrich, to photographer Steve Ringman, and to yourself. Well done all.
