On our last full day in the Palouse, we went up in the hills to photograph the farmers at work. We were all going to have rides in the machines but unfortunately the tractor broke down before I had a chance to ride in it.
Wendy and our friend Mark taking a ride on the tractor before it broke down. The women in the middle was the farm owner's daughter.
We stopped to look in this old circular barn.
This shot was taken inside the barn, looking up at the roof.

Another abandoned barn in a different area. There was still lots of haze and smoke in the skies.
On our last night, we were invited to Jack's (photo leader) house for dinner. Before eating we hiked up in the hills on his property to see what the sunset was like. This shot was taken while we waited for the sun to set.

This photo was taken facing a different direction. It was too bad that it was another hazy night. We really had a difficult time photographing the sunsets on this trip. There were either no clouds or lots of hazy conditions.
The next morning we had a few more hours to take some photos before leaving the area and starting our six hour drive back to Vancouver.

We came across another old abandoned building.
A grain of wheat that the Palouse is so famous for.

The last photograph of the trip. It was a wonderful area to visit and I'm looking forward to returning some year during the spring.
