The Palouse
Ancient silt deposits from the Columbia River, blown in during the late Ice Age, give this rich wheat land its distinctive relief. Follow country roads over the gentle rolling hills, through rural farm communities and past historic landmarks. View the sweeping landscape from the Steptoe and Kamiak Buttes. Visit Colfax and the nearby university town of Pullman, both in the heart of the Palouse.  Photo -Chris Sollart
