The Palouse provides stress free wandering

July 22, 2014

This Weekend Wanderer heads for Palouse Falls State Park, but as all true wanderers know, it is not the destination, but the wandering that counts.

On the way, you need to cruise the back roads and small farm towns of Palouse country to melt away your stress, so load the kids in the minivan or SUV and get going.

To get to Palouse country from Issaquah, of course you’re stuck on Interstate 90 to Moses Lake. I-90 is a familiar run; even so, there are a couple of things to note: The snow shed you always looked for as a kid so you could tell dad to “honk the horn, honk the horn,” near Lake Keechelus, has disappeared to make way for highway improvements.
