Amber Waves of Grain
Up before sunrise we drove to Steptoe Butte State Park & National Landmark which is the highest point in the area at 3,612 feet. It rises about 1,000 feet above the surrounding countryside which is on an elevated plateau. Sunrise was at 5:36 am and we arrived early, in time for the deep orange glow. It was something like I had imagined since first wanting to come here years ago. What surprised me was that the land seemed to possess a spiritual energy that is hard to describe unless you are there to hear the silence. Unique and welcoming, I instantly fell in love with the place. More about the Palouse in my next post.
