Spring in the Palouse

Life is always an adventure, my husband Charles and I decided to make a quick trip to the Palouse.

The Palouse is a region of the northwestern United States, encompassing parts of southeastern Washington, north central Idaho. It is a major agricultural area, primarily producing wheat and legumes. Situated about 160 miles north of the Oregon Trail, the region experienced rapid growth in the late 19th century, and for a brief time surpassed the population of the Puget Sound region of Washington.The region is home to two land grant universities, the University of Idaho in Moscow and Washington State University in Pullman.

Having been in this part of the world many times, we took a quick visit to the WSU (Washington State University) grounds to visit Ferdinand's Ice Cream Shoppe, the university's gourmet ice cream shop, features old-fashioned ice cream and soda fountain treats, exclusive ice cream flavors, gourmet coffee and espresso drinks and of course, award winning Cougar Cheese.

Best ice cream ever!
