The Palouse, known for generations as a great place to grow things, what with its scenic, rolling hills underlain by rich dark soil, has in recent years been recognized as a good place to farm wind as well.  I’ve been driving through this subtly beautiful part of the Pacific Northwest, on the way back from my Rockies road trip.  I’m eager to get back home after so long away, and with an upcoming overseas trip, do not have the patience to give this place the time it deserves.  I passed the site of the Whitman Mission today, and also drove along the shortcut that the Corps of Discovery took on its way back east.  It was another case where Lewis and Clark were aided by the natives of the area.  While traveling through here, the two noted the excellent potential of the area for farming, if only the Snake River could be tapped for water.  Perhaps they saw how one day irrigation would grow massively in scale.
