A Trip to Eastern Washington


One a recent trip to Spokane we made several stops in eastern Washington for photos, though one of our stops, a planned hike was cut short by a phone call about a sick friend.  Many of the photos are my wife's and they were taken across eastern Washington from the Cascades to Spokane.

  1. excellent Bobcat capture. Having the camera at the ready is always a challenge. It is moments like that when i realize how slow sleeping cameraas can be.

    1. Thanks, Marti. Wish it had been sharper, but by the time we stopped and got the cameras out I missed it entirely.
