Several bloggers have joined the tour. Check out the updated calendar. Some time has opened up the last week of June, and there is still room in July. I'm enjoying the relaxed pace of this tour.
To really get a feel for the farm setting, you must see more than houses and barns. It's all about wheat fields. David's photos give you a rare look at what I think is one of the most beautiful sights in the world. Rolling fields waving with golden wheat. He even got shots of combines harvesting. Who needs alps and oceans? Give me the rolling Palouse country in Eastern Washington.
|Here's the farm at it's best--right before harvest.|
|If you looks close, you can see Michael and Leesie jumping these hills!|
|Wheat as far as your eye can see. Whitman County is the largest wheat producing county in the world.|
|This gives you a sense of how hilly the whole country is. There's the railroad trestle and Tekoa in the distance.|
|This grain elevator is right across from the farmhouse. The poem I wrote in UNBROKEN CONNECTION about Phil and Leesie riding bikes in the rain was inspired by a rainy ride my step-brother and I took on the dirt road that leads to this elevator.|
