West Glacier to Moses Lake
It was an overcast morning in Glacier again, but as we left the mountains and began travelling down the Flathead Valley the weather began to clear. Heading east we found ourselves in undulating farming country. Along the way were many dilapidated farm buildings, this is the first one we noticed.
A little further on Graham spotted some cattle with huge horns lazing in a paddock.
Throughout this region the rivers are magnificent. Very broad and fast flowing, often they have fir trees to the edge of their banks. Today we followed the Lewis Fork River for quite a distance.
It was one of those days where you continually decide to go just a little further, in all we covered 600 km. Spokane was reached in the early afternoon, it is a large city and home to Paradise Fibers. We called in for a visit and I was very restrained, only buying three skeins of yarn (but lots of touching and looking).
As we did not want to stay in a city we kept moving on, eventually staying at Moses Lake. On the way we stopped at Ritzville for fuel and noticed directions to its ‘historic centre’. We decided to have a look and although small I was intrigued that is would have a combined quilt and liquor store. Perhaps it is for the times when the stitching just won’t work!
