Transporting the wheat to market

The last few weeks I have been photographing the wheat harvest and sharing aspects of that process.

Yesterday as I was leaving Colfax on my way to Walla Walla I decided to stop at Central Ferry and watch another part of getting the wheat to market.

It is a colorful process watching the tugboats and barges as they wait to be filled and then start on the long journey downriver to market. Central Ferry is located on the Snake River and it is interesting to watch the large trucks unload and then eventually the grain is transferred from the elevators to the waiting barges.

Take the opportunity to visit Central Ferry and you will get some great images as well as be able to see still another step in the wheat harvest.
