Eastern Washington really does have its own beauty - it certainly isn't the lush, moist conifer forests of Western Wash. but, the rolling hills, waves of farm land, deep river valleys and rugged hills gives it its own visual drama. It can be especially dramatic in the deep winter with thick frost in the trees and shrubs, dense ice fog and rays of sunlight streaking through gaps in the clouds, trees and dense ground fog. Really something sometimes.
