Walk across a gulch created by the catastrophic Missoula Floods. Hear the gulch’s stories—geologic and human--and explore the neighborhoods along its rim: Sullivan’s Gulch, where large old homes and trees offer beautiful walking, and Kerns, where light industry has thrived for over a hundred years.

About the Photos
Sullivan’s Gulch was created by the catastrophic Missoula Floods. The gultch has been a route for trains, and now the I-84 freeway and MAX light rail follow its path. In 1932 part of Lloyd Golf Course lay in the gultch. Most of the course was atop the south bank of Sullivan’s Gulch (up the slope on the right) but a couple of the holes, including this green under construction, were down in the gulch itself. (Top) View east, about NE 15th, (Right) View east, NE 21st. NE 28th Ave overpass in the back of both.
