A beaut of a Butte....

A short, cold, trip to Kamiak Butte, near Palouse, WA… I did a little hiking, stomping through the snow in my sneakers, with no hat or gloves. I only went partway up the Butte, I was slipping and sliding, and getting snow in my shoes. And more snow was predicted, I didn't want to to caught unprepared. Yet another addition to the “to do” list for whenever nicer weather arrives!

The lower part of the road was OK, but it turned snow-packed not far above this point

There's a trail in there somewhere...

Peeking between some trees, a view of the rolling hills of the Palouse.

The sign by the road, tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the butte...
