Washington Trip, Part 1- East Side Memories

 At the beginning of August, we were able to take a wonderful 18-day road trip up to Washington.  I hadn't been back in 5 years, and I was missing it!  We so appreciate everyone who fed us and let us stay in their homes.  It was great to see so many friends and visit some of our favorite places.
We lived in Albion, WA for 5 years.  It's a small town with about 630 people.
Our old house in Albion.  It looked a lot better when we lived there ;)
The park across the street from our old house.  Titus and I spent many mornings playing ball and frisbee here.
A view from the Albion cemetery- beautiful rolling farmland.

Albion sits low in these trees in the middle of wheat and bean fields.

Glorious wheat fields- amber waves of grain
Titus enjoying the ride through wheat fields.
Boyer Park along the Snake River- one of our very favorite places in Washington.
You can visit Granite Dam and see a fish ladder at the visitor center.
The river is lined with wild blackberries.  Titus had a belly full of berries this day!

We took a hike up Kamiak Butte and Titus did great!
We spent one day in the Spokane area visiting friends.  Titus got to see his buddy Boonie!
No trip to Pullman is complete without a trip to WSU's creamery and Ferdinand's ice cream.
Rows and rows of plant cabinets in the herbarium where Josh used to work.

More rolling hills near Moscow, ID
After leaving the east side of Washington, we headed west.  More to come!
