New photos added of eastern Washington

I just finished a trip through eastern Washington and added photographs on my Washington gallery page. News shots were taken in Whitman and Lincoln County, as well as at the Omak Stampede. That means agriculture, barns, and Native American culture.

At the Yakama Nation Cultural Center, 14 teepees are erected to represent the 14 tribes who signed the treaty of 1855, giving away about 1/3rd of the state to the U.S. Government.
