What in the world is so awesome about Lewiston, idaho???? Once the EPA stepped in, they took away the wind direction indicator (the Potlatch paper mill).

I live 30 miles north of Lewiston and can’t think of a single reason why any one would want to visit there. Except maybe the Lewiston Roundup, but that doesn’t happen until September.

Nancy, it's been years since I was last in the Palouse hills. Lots of rolling wheat . I do like the museum of the Appaloosa Horse Club, a bit north of there , if I recall correctly.

The wheat fields are pretty, especially when the wheat is ripe, just before harvest, and there is a slight breeze.

The Appaloosa Horse Club museum is right on the edge of town, almost on the Washington border. An interesting place, especially for a horse person!!

Can’t think of anything else fun to do in Moscow. Town sure has changed a lot in the 50+ years I’ve lived here. Just not the same. On a political map, you can always pick out Latah County - it is the one blue spot in a sea of red!!

Those wheat fields are mentioned in "America the Beautiful"......."rolling waves of grain"..
We're going there to see the lady's first-born Grandchild so the daytrips will be short. laugh

Gary, those wheat fields really are beautiful . Especially when , as Nancy mentioned, they are ready for harvest , golden waves , in late afternoon, with a dark rain sky in the background but sun on the fields in front. They just glow.

I spent two years on wheat harvest.......from Oklahoma to North Dakota. I love a productive field of wheat going through a combine.

theres some fur trade history there, an old Northwest Co trading post interpretive centre with some artefacts and reenactments depending on time frame. David Thompson was involved:

Dick's burgers, Longhorn BBQ, Northern Quest casino. Stay in the Spokane valley. Nicer hotels there.

You could practice for the Midjet toss by throwing beavers around.

Go East to Idaho.

I have heard some places in Spokane won't let you in unless you have "Papers"

I don't know about papers but you will have to have deep pockets to get Gonzaga tickets.

Thank you for the responses but the main reason for going there is to see a new Grandbaby. Doubt there'll be much distance traveling. laugh

I would hate to see your definition of liberal if you consider Spokane "extremely conservative".

Took the words right out of my mouth Bearcat 2.
I live in Post Falls on the south side of the river and can think of several spots to visit but being in the area for more important events like yours kind'a cuts it down to just a very few spots. Post Falls Dam might interest you.. Going downtown Cd'A to see the resort and board walk or the Cd"A Golf course with the floating green which both are on the lake in downtown . If you have a day trip planned head south a little ways to Saint Maries and drive up the St. Joe river up to a little berg of a place called Avery. Used to have a place there I called "happy Place" before my health went big time south. Pretty drive along the river but of course at this time of year kinda dreary looking. Gas, food & museum available.. Stay outa Spookkane for everything but family. Take care.


Hunt with your Kids, not for them.
