Eastern Washington: Places Lesser Known:

Today snow, ice rain and the open plains of Eastern Washington. I am driving through Fishtrap, Sprague, Ritzville, Lind, Cunningham, and Hatton along the China Express.
Near Fishtrap, WA.
Sprague, WA.
Grain elevators dot the landscape.
Lind: Home of the Combine Demolition Derby.
Lunch at Jakes Homecooking Cafe. Famous for homemade donuts. Never saw any donuts here.
Coal train outside of Hatton, WA.
The Washington wheat plains stretch to the horizon.
This section of the rail route seems to speak of "harvest and stewardship".  The importance of community and how we will define it for future generations.

“The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.”  Pope John Paul II

be strong, be safe, Carlan
