Picture perfect Palouse


Last weekend I took my dad and husband to the Palouse for a photo field trip. In addition to taking hundreds (if not thousands) of images, we visited the official waterfall of Washington, learned the origin of the term steptoe, and ate our weight in hotel waffles.

The slideshow below includes some of the best photos I took. I can’t wait to see what my dad and Nick created!¬†Click the little arrow at the bottom right of the slideshow to embiggen.

    Ok, from the department of arcane details….re the origin of the name of Steptoe Butte….this particular butte is to my understanding named after Colonel Steptoe, whom the Nez Perce defeated in the late 1850’s in nearby Rosalia, WA (I was driven by the battlefield many times as a kid, being a child of the Palouse). But it’s neat to know that the term steptoe appears to have become a generic word for this kind of butte.
