Palouse Country Professional Review and Guide
"This 98-mile drive goes south, near Washington’s border with Idaho, through gently rolling farmlands and rural towns. This drive through Palouse Country winds over and around gently rolling farmlands and rural towns. Wheat is the main crop, but lentils and peas are also grown in abundance. Palouse hills were formed by one million years of accumulated glacial and wind-blown silt from the Columbia River during the last ice age.
The drive is most beautiful in the spring when the wheatfields are a luxuriant green. Late summer is another excellent time to visit, when the golden fields bow in the winds and the wheat’s hues change with the day’s light. Special attractions: Uniontown fence, Washington State University, Steptoe Butte State Park.
