The Palouse by Ken Rodgers

The Palouse by Ken Rodgers

The Palouse is a region of the northwestern United States, including parts of southeastern Washington, north central Idaho and northeast Oregon.

It is a big agricultural area, primarily producing wheat and legumes… but it’s a beautiful area too, really beautiful if a great artist as Ken Rodgers takes a photo with his camera and different eyes. Today, enjoy The Palouse by Ken Rodgers and have a nice Sunday, because Art is Everywhere!

The origin of the name “Palouse” isn’t clear. A theory is that the name of the Palus tribe was converted by French-Canadian fur traders to French word pelouse, meaning “land with short and thick grass.” Another theory is that the word was French from the beginning, describing the lands where lived the indigenous people called Palloatpallah or Pelusha.

Anyway, it’s a marvelous place.
