Our roadtrip to Kittitas, Wa. Over Labor Day weekend we went up and visited my cousin and his wife in central Washington. most of these pics are taken out the truck window. So sorry for the blurs at times.
I wanted to take some pics that show how the land changes, as you drive up the Columbia Gorge. On this trip you go from lush fir and maple and alder to oak and pine and sagebrush, and eventually grasslands with rolling hills. All within a two hour drive.
Here we are at the start of our drive, in the West end of the Gorge.
We pass the mouth of the Wind River, the Salmon are running so all along the highway here there are trucks and trailers, they launch their boats then go park up along the road and walk all the way back to where the launch is.
You can see some of the boats on the lake here.
There are 5 tunnels along this side of the river, along with a train tunnel too. #1
More road trip and the Kittitas county fair. We didnt go to the Ellensburg rodeo, which runs in conjunction with the fair. I did get to see a surprise minor celebrity, riding slack, before the rodeo.
