    Eastern Washington Meeting?

    Would anyone be interested in meeting on a weekend out in the Eastern Washington area? I know there are a few of us folks out this way (Moscow, Spokane, etc).

    If there is any interest, post here and maybe I can figure out getting something together.

    Andy in Richland. We've got Wallula Gap, the Horse Heaven Hills and some fine wineries.

    Early last month I spent several days shooting over in the Palouse - mostly around Colfax and down along the Snake. Then two weeks ago I spent a week on a combo photo/fishing trip up in the Loomis area.

    Depending on when, I would be interested in meeting.

    Randy,

    You will want to go up Steptoe Butte. In my opinion it is best shortly after sunrise or shortly before sunset but is still good most any time. I have been there a number of times and the only real problem I have had is sometimes it is pretty windy. It was the last time I was there so I wound up only shooting with my 35mm.

    Other than that, the whole area is great. I just kind of drive around and take a lot of back roads and dirt roads. I have a "Washington Atlas and Gazetteer" map book that shows back roads though most of the time I don't pull it out until I'm so lost I need a clue.

    Yep, Steptoe in the right season and right light can be pretty spectacular. I've got a few decent pics from that place.

    Also, the road from Tekoa to Oakesdale has a lot of potential - can't remember the highway number off the top of my head.

    For those of us willing to take an additional jaunt into North Idaho, there are a few good spots in the Clark Fork area, McCroskey Park, and for those architecture fans - Burke, Idaho.

    Probably the last week of this month, I'll be in Glacier shooting. How's everyone's schedule look? Any spots that you folks want to see or visit in particular?

    I'm a beginner in Large Format, and would love a chance to meet with local shooters. Count me in! I'm in Spokane.

    I'm from the west side of the state, but I grew up in Pullman, and my parents still live there. I'd be interested in a meeting if the time works out.
