Photo Week - Landscape

Color Week is here again! This time my wife Stephanie is in charge of moderating. She has chosen Auto-inspiration as the subject. I'm actually in Spokane, Washington this week for some engineer training. So all of my posts will be chosen from the beautiful state of Washington. Without further ado...

This is from Palouse Falls State Park. It was formed only 15,000 years ago by the great Missoula floods. Can you imagine a 1,000 feet tall body of water cutting this vast canyon? This is what Geologist's have concluded.


This is also at the Palouse Falls State Park. The waterfall is nearly 200 feet high.


This sign cracked me up. Note the "CAN". I would have to say that "Falling WILL be deadly"

This is from Steptoe Butte State Park. At 3,613 feet, this is one big hill. The mountains you see in the background are the Blue Mountains. All the hills have wheat stuble or are fallow.

Great pictures! I really love the first one with the tiny river flowing below. I guess "landscape" wasn't to difficult for you, being in such a beautiful area and all...

I see how it is. That wife of yours totally set up the landscape theme around your trip. I see how it is. Very sneaky but well done. . . . Great shots, Scott. I really want to get out to Oregon & Washington soon. Thanks for the sneak peak!

Great shots Scott. When do you find time for your conference? I think I'd have to call in sick at the conference and rent a car. Have fun.
