April 21 marked the first visit to Palouse Falls for Vickie Schloss of Spokane, and only the fourth for Tyler Bradt of Stevensville, Mont.

Both were in for a memorable afternoon at the Washington State Park and its namesake 198-foot waterfall on the Whitman-Franklin county line.

"We knew something was going on," Schloss said. "A few kaykers were hiking down (to the pool below the falls) and several camera crews setting up. They weren't saying too much, but we figured somebody was going off the falls."

Without warning, at about 2:30 p.m., Bradt's red kayak appeared on the top left side of the falls from Schloss' perspective at the park's overlook.
