Day 83: Finishing the Palouse

We said our goodbyes to Jack and went to the ATM and grocery shopping which allowed us to see a bit of Ellensburg. I like it. We even rode through a bit of Central Washington University on our way out of town.

This section of trail along the Yakima River is really nice. We stopped in the town of Cle Elum for a burrito lunch at Señor Bones.

We chose Easton State Park for camping. While getting snacks at the store nearby we talked with Trevor and Bryan, two Canadian cyclists, riding to Beverly (we were there a few days ago) so we gave them some tips.

After finally crossing the “Palouse”, I decided to look it up. apparently it is French for “land of thick, short grass“ (before it was farmed).

This is how the gravel should be…not too deep
Nice trail along Yakima River
Cooling off in the Yakima River. Brent will be proud
