Spokane, Washington

Bill and I left my parents in Montana late this morning and drove I-90 thru Montana and Idaho (only 1 hour to pass thru that state) stopping in Spokane for the night.  It was the first sunny day since our arrival into the States, but as we approached the mountains that separate Montana from Idaho we were dumped on by several short rain showers.  We arrived into Spokane around 4 in the afternoon here although we gained an hour when we crossed into Idaho.  It was a very pretty drive thru the mountains and still some snow along the road near Lookout Pass.  Tomorrow we continue on to The Dalles driving thru the wheat fields of eastern Washington and Oregon.
