Palouse trip July 2013 - day 2 sketches

Saturday, Paul and I explored the surrounding area of Ellensburg, WA. One area was the Kittitas Valley Wind Farm, about 12 miles northeast of Ellensburg. This wind farm has 48 wind turbines, at 262 feet tall with each blade being 144 feet long. Quite the sight to see from a distance and up close.

We had lunch in Ellensburg at the Red Horse Diner that had 17 choices of hamburgers - of course we had fries; it was delicious. This diner was filled with gas station memorabilia. It was a neat neat place.

On our way to Colfax we took a side detour to see the Palouse Falls - 199 feet tall - this is the confluence of the Palouse and the Snake River. The canyon is 377 feet deep.
