Welcome to the Palouse

This is what greeted me as I drove up to the Palouse in SE Washington State for a week of exploring and photographing.  The brilliant pink and orange lasted for only a few minutes.  I rapidly looked for a place to pull off the highway.  By the time I got out and pulled out my camera, the magic was just about over  In less that a minute the glow was gone.  Too bad it is illegal to stop in the middle of a highway to capture a shot.

I was really excited about the clouds and what I expected to see during the next few days.  However, the clouds did not come back during my stay.  So I focused on the rolling hills, unique lines, and architectural elements.  This trip was for scouting anyway.
