Walla Walla is a most delightful town, its houses are nice,
its suburbs are quiet, spacious and well kept,
and Main Street looks like a Main Street should,
there are lots of local shops and few national chain shops, it has a nice University Campus, there is a strong cultural life and so the list goes on and on.
If we were ever to be planning on living in the USA, then we could choose no better than Walla Walla.
But after three days here, we have to say goodbye and head north 600 miles to Glacier National Park. Over these miles we pass through a variety of landscapes, first driving along long straight roads
through large field wheat farms where the crop is either ready for harvest
or has been harvested already and the fields have been ploughed ready for the next crop.
There are images of country life
and past times which were more profitable
and the occasional dust devil blowing across the road in front of us.
And then we get into Idaho where the Interstate is wide and fast and boring to drive (but we cover the miles very fast)
and then into Montana which seems to be all rivers
lakes and mountains
and more rivers until we get to Glacier National Park.
