There is a short window of time every Spring when eastern Washington turns brilliant green. With deep snows and plenty of rain, this year the scrub steppe lands are particularly green as new grass growth covers over the brown grasses of the year before.
With the heavy snow and cool Spring, word was out that Palouse Falls was putting on a show. Since I was passing by on a Saturday, the crowds were lined up. The State Park employee at the entrance said folks were having to wait close to 2 hours as the park was full.
