Oftentimes in rural locations, it can be quite a trek to other towns and cities. But, that's not the case with Palouse. You can get to Pullman, WA or Moscow, ID in under 20 minutes; Lewiston, ID in about an hour; and Spokane, WA and Coeur d' Alene, ID in under an hour and a half.
So, last week when we had a perfect winter day I took advantage of that proximity to things and headed to my favorite spot in Moscow - the University of Idaho's Arboretum & Botanical Garden.
I knew I didn't have much time to spend there. In fact, I was probably there a total of 20 minutes. But, it was so worth it.
In the midst of winter, there were splashes of orange
solitary benches beckoned
And the skies were downright magical.
Sometimes a 20 minute field trip is all you need.
