Steptoe Butte: above the fog

It was downright spring-like in the Palouse yesterday–parts of it, at least–with temps in the 40s and clear skies, so I went for a nice road ride. Afterward, I stopped at Steptoe Butte State Park and photographed these shots right at the fog line. If you’re desperate to see the sun after this weeklong inversion, Steptoe Butte is the place to go.

20140104-_DSC1109There may not be enough snow for winter activities, but the weather is great for biking–if you can put up with the cold! Thanks to my friend Kari for letting me get this shot today, for an upcoming feature on cycling the Palouse for Adventures NW magazine, while I stayed warm behind the lens.
