Created: 31 January 2014

The beautiful hills of Palouse are considered to be the most fundamental to the agriculture of this area. This fertile farmland produced wheat, legumes, etc. 

Palouse territory is very popular among the photographers and those who love scenic driving. This area is beautiful all the year round. The palette of colors is different but beautiful during each season.

The colors of the Palouse hills depend on the different weather conditions and on the kind of the crops that grow here. 

The Palouse region is not a large area, but it opens great opportunities before photographers.

In spring drivers will enjoy green color of the hills, and later this green becomes richer and darker.

Summer is the time for drivers and photographers to enjoy yellow color of canola. The middle and the end of June are characterized by the rows of swatted grass that is drying in the sun.

As everyone knows, fall is the harvest time, so photographers will surely be able to shoot the pictures of tractors, combines and farm trucks.

Winter season is different every year, but most of the time drivers will see a good amount of snow here, fog and mist is common for this region, especially near water.

To cut a long story short, this road is very beautiful and perfect for taking pictures.
