The Palouse is a region of the northwestern United States, encompassing parts of southeastern Washington, north central Idaho and, in some definitions, parts of northeast Oregon. It's a major agricultural area, primarily producing wheat and legumes.
The Palouse is a beautiful and exiting area to photograph!
If you plan to photograph in this area I would highly recommend acquiring the services of a guide. I can highly recommend Teri-Lou Dantzer. She not only knows the area extremely well and the people who live there but she is also an excellent photographer in her own right. You can check out Teri Lou at www.palousephotographytours.com.
