. . .or did you mean these cataclysmic events?

Coyote, the Trickster spirit hero of many native stories, fell in love with three sisters who were building a salmon trap on the river near here. Each night Coyote would destroy their trap, and each day the girls would rebuild it. One morning Coyote saw the girls crying and found out that they were starving because they had not been able to catch any fish in their trap. Coyote promised them a working fish trap if they would become his wives. They agreed, and Coyote kept his promise; however, over the years he became jealous of them. He changed two of the wives into these basalt pillars and turned the third into a cave downstream. He became a rock nearby so he could watch over them forever.

That's the Twin Sisters on the eastern shore of the Columbia/Lake Wallula. It's just over the Washington/Oregon state line.
Correct.
@stagor Lewis & Clark camped nearby on Oct. 19, 1805. Also on the return the next May a few days before the Patit Ck campsite previously posted.

The second view is of Wallula Gap which was a choke point of the Missoula Floods. It backed up a huge lake up to nearly the tops of the bluffs seen. The whole lake drained through here in a matter of hours/days to back up again farther down stream. Evidence can still be seen all over the landscape.
