While visiting the Palouse you will encounter in some of the small towns a landmark or statue that has significant meaning to the residents of the town. In Colfax, if you ask a local what are the sights of interest I almost always hear “Have you seen the Codger Pole?”

This Pole is located in the middle of town and as you drive down Main Street you can see it from your car. I would suggest getting out and exploring the Pole and the sign that tells the story. Below in the photo, I have included the sign that tells the legend.

These side trips can be taken during the middle of the day while you are waiting for the evening light to photograph the landscape of the Palouse. Exploring the small towns and getting a feel for the culture can provide some very rewarding experiences for you.
