I have gotten pretty good at taking photos from the passenger-side windows of our car. On our way to Montana and back, I shot these photos from the moving vehicle-I really wanted my friends to see what the air quality was, as a result of the wildfires in Montana and Eastern Washington.
This was just east of Spokane, on Interstate 90.
This was what we could see of Lake Coeur D’Alene. Lake? What lake?
On our way home, the air had cleared up a great deal. These photos are my favorite basalt cliffs of the Columbia Gorge, on the east bank of the river, just outside East Wenatchee, Washington.
See the green at the base of this photo? Those are vineyards. Many orchardists around Wenatchee, the apple capital of the world, are pulling up their orchards and planting wine grapes.
