On the Road, the Palouse to the Snake

We’re having a great time, wish you were here. Yesterday we drove sporadically, due to the call of irresistible landscape, from Walla Walla, through Colfax and Pullman, to Lewiston, ID and on to Orofino where we spent the night serenaded by the Clearwater River just outside.

Stopping for another quick pic.

Grape vines

Over 160 vineyards in the Walla Walla neighborhood. This is one not far from town.

The road to Lewiston, ID, early evening.

Next stop Hamilton, MT and an intensive photo workshop. Now things get serious.

  1. This looks so wonderful! I didn’t think it would be so green! BJ

  2. BJ, we were surprised at how green it is for this time of year. We were also lucky that most of the wheat hadn’t been harvested yet. It’s a truly beautiful part of the country.

  3. I love that route!! There are sections that are just dreamy-beautiful.
    Have a fun and safe trip!
