Mild Winter in the Palouse

As I visited the Palouse today, I was surprised at the look of winter in the area. Typically at this time of year there is snow on the ground and the temperatures are very cold. As you can see from the image at the top of this post there was no snow and the temperature was very moderate.

The winter wheat is showing through the ground and as I spoke with a couple of farmers in the area they mentioned it almost seems like spring has come. Also I was able to drive to the top of Steptoe Butte in my car. I haven’t been able to do that for several years during January.

With the mild weather and some clouds in the sky, I had a great time visiting and photographing the area. Once again, it seems the Palouse is a great region to photograph at any time of the year.

  1. I was wandering around the internet today…seeking old barn images as a resource for a new painting series…and discovered your sight. Besides sharing an interest in old barns, my alma mater is Fresno State. I just started my blog, “Artists’s Block”, and was inspired by yours. Thank you!

  2. Thanks for your comments Maribeth. I will follow your blog as well. Looks interesting.
