Today I explored the Columbia and Spokane River valleys on the way to Spokane. It was gray and snowy pretty much everywhere I went today, but that’s what I was looking for.

When I climbed to 1200 m / 4000ʹ elevation, I found snow. And then it followed me back down.

Some crazy mountain roads in there. The last bit (Creston to Deer Park) was kind of hair-raising; sadly, no pictures from that part.
