The Picture-Perfect Palouse

The Picture-perfect Palouse – a slideshow featuring photos of the Palouse, captured while on drives and walks in Palouse Country throughout the year.  First-time visitors to the Palouse region describe our unique Palouse landscapes as peaceful, tranquil, different from any other place they’ve seen.  If you would truly understand the beauty of the Palouse, you must visit the Palouse…drive its paved roads and dirt roads (some 2000 miles’ worth)…and discover its charms. Until then, please enjoy these Palouse photos – just a small sampler of our Picture-Perfect Palouse.

    Note from Rod – This post has absolutely nothing to do with radio, advertising, marketing, or sales. I’m in the process of moving my photography site (PalousePics.com) to WordPress, and the host evidently thought this post should end up on my blog site. Since whenever I post a new blog, various notices spring up in people’s email and social media feeds, I thought it best just to leave this up, rather than have folks clicking on the post and getting a 404 Error. For my out-of-town friends, enjoy this glimpse into the tranquil area I get to call home. For those already familiar with the Palouse, well…lucky you.

    Rod: That was beautiful and it fit right in on this remarkably mild (49 Degrees) Sunday in New England. I have been to your part of the world when I was selling nationally, not Pullman but Portland and Seattle, and on to Vancouver (Canada ain’t bad either). First time I left New England, I was 23 and bound for Ft. Dix, New Jersey _ kind of a local kid. After getting into this business I traveled a lot and broke my ass getting to work in New York. After three years there I couldn’t wait to get back to Boston – which I finally appreciated. My two sons are “Over There”. One is in San Francisco – He married a lady who grew up in California – and thinks Los Angeles is a beautiful town – (Really?) And the younger guy is in Phoenix (working for the IRS). Both tried Radio, and didn’t like it. The older is in Advertising _ By the way he’s a terrific photographer and the younger fooled around for a while, lived in El Salavador and married a native. My wife insisted she get her American Citizenship ( and we are glad we did). He now answers questions (In Spanish) for a bunch of people who worry that the government of the USA is going to kick them out. (Don’t get me started.) At age 82, I’m afraid my traveling days are through but America is beautiful and thank you for your service to the radio industry.
