Gone Explorin’

Last week’s trip to the Scablands of Central Washington contained a ridiculous amount amazingness. In fact, there was so much amazingness that occurred that it’s hard to fully quantify just how awesome it was. I’ll add more photos to this post once I’ve collected all of them, but here some ones to look over for now, especially from the tour we took of the Grand Coulee Dam.
