By dint of natural history, a burst ice dam at the end of the Ice Age and a monumental torrent of water over a portion of the Columbia Plateau, the Palouse in eastern Washington and southern Idaho was formed. Roughly translated from French meaning meadow, the Palouse features fertile rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Farms, silos, barns, ruins and field upon field of wheat, barley, canola and the occasional cattle ranch, small town in the hollows with abrupt Buttes punctuating the horizon. Surprisingly difficult to capture with a camera and do justice to the sheer expanse of it all.
