Let's take a field trip...Steptoe Butte

You know how in some families the kids look nothing alike? Well, that's Kamiak Butte and its sister-butte, SteptoeKamaik is woodsy and hike-able; Steptoe, more barren but drive-able. Still, like the siblings who look nothing alike, they share certain traits. In this case: KILLER VIEWS! 

Steptoe has an other-worldly quality.

As the sun and shadows move across the landscape, it feels alive.

Every direction, every view, has different nuances. 

In the evening change happens quickly, almost imperceptibly. Light shifts and the sun begins to go down.

All the crazy equipment takes on a transformer-esque feel.

While droves of photographers (on this evening, several groups dotted the butte) prepare to capture the perfect sunset pic, others (me) were preoccupied capturing the photo of the people taking the photos of the perfect sunset. 

But I still had time to catch this.

Hope you make it to Steptoe this summer!

PS - If you go, the drive from Palouse is at least 45 minutes. There are a couple of ways to get there so check out a map (online or old-school). Enjoy!

A sea of green...

You know it's June on The Palouse when the fields are awash in a sea of green. Pedro Calderon de la Barca (1600-1681) said: "Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises."  Now, I don't know about 'the world' but here on The Palouse in rules.

Happy Weekend.

In case you missed it...

Last Saturday's annual Spring BBQ & Hot Rod Gathering was pretty much AMAZING! The weather was beautiful. The cars were beautiful (wish I could have photographed them ALL). And, as always, our little town was beautiful. 

But if you missed it, don't fret. Palouse has a whole summer full of events lined up. Click HERE and mark your calendar!

It's always a great day in Palouse!
