Eastern Washington is an amazing place!
Geologically it has seen a great ice shelf that
burst open and washed across the face of the land.
To best see this scaring you'd have to fly over
which I have done. Come see it at eye
level, some photos were taken through
the car windows and may have a dark tint.
It is a very hot day.
The wind really was turning these giant windmills
Bento boxes for lunch
ate looking out over the Columbia river
Wasn't easy to find a place to eat, everything
is closed from the winter season.

It is HOT!
This is for you Laureen!
Caught it as we passed a couple
of very slow big rigs.
Remember these Indian horses?
Stud tires and winter chains means road work
Spring and Summer. We went for miles on the
bunps in the road. Misery!
So take a guess
What do we grow that is yellow?
Some of the fields had the crops names on the fences.
Now who knows if they grew potatoes on that field
10 years ago, or if it really was growing there right now!
In Washington state we grow things!
We are the #1 grower of apples, all kinds.
We are 5th in the nation for wheat, and #2 for potatoes, #3 for hay.
I love the taste of Washington grown potatoes!
Our other #1 in the nation crops are hops, barley, Kentucky bluegrass,
onions, mint, carrots, asparagus, cherries, grapes, pears and raspberries.
Miles of hay storage. Looks like they are about to harvest
their first cuttings of alfalfa. Such a pretty green right before harvest!
Now isn't that a pretty green?

Next posting will be down town Spokane
and the water fall that goes on and on!
