Photo essay from our trip to Spokane and the Columbia River Gorge

Rochelle and I took a brief trip to Washington State last week. We drove through the Columbia Gorge on Interstate Highway 84, then traveled on I-82 and I-90 through sparsely-populated eastern Washington to Spokane.

Spokane is a friendly and welcoming city. We enjoyed the downtown attractions and a great lunch at Sante, one of Spokane's best restaurants.

Our drive home took us west on Highway 14, a scenic route that runs parallel to the Columbia River on the Washington side.

The following photographs provide highlights from our trip.
