I always wondered what a place called Walla Walla would look like.
Heading out of Walla Walla last week, on our way to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho via Spokane, the lighting (followed by the sunset) was really fantastic. Unfortunately, we were going about 60 MPH. Fortunately, I wasn’t the driver. I took today’s photo out my window as we sped down the highway to our final destination.
I have posted photos from Beatty before here and here. Our friends have a ranch in Beatty so we have been there several times, but the last couple days were our first visit in winter. The weather was all over the place. Sometimes below freezing, sometimes sunny and almost warm–snow, hail, and rain all fell from the skies. Today’s photo comes during a sunny interlude between a snow storm and a hail storm. There was no wind at the moment I took this, but there were extreme winds less than a half hour before.
Tomorrow there will be kind-of-a-big-deal game, otherwise known as the first ever 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship. However, it won’t take place at the location of today’s photo even though the Ducks will be playing. Instead, it will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas–home of the Dallas Cowboys.
This photo was a 10+ photo photomerge I took from the press box back in November of 2013. The rain you can see on the far left swept through the stadium during warmups a few minutes later, but it never rained again on this day (or during the game). Oregon prevailed over Utah.
