Spokane

We were sad and already nostalgic upon driving off Capitol hill onto the very start of I-90 from I-5. We listened to Seattle radio until KEXP drifted off into static. We're going to miss Seattle, and all of the people in it that have been so important to us.

As it grew dark, the moon rose in the East. It was an early harvest moon, a huge low amber colored orb that seemed to invite us formward to our East coast destination.

We've only been driving for a few hours, but are stopping for the first night to rest at a truck stop (called Flying J) just east of Spokane. We'll rest the night, get up early, and hit Idaho next. Our goal is to do all of Montana tomorrow (that's the state just east of Idaho).

Did anyone know that there is a town called George, WA?

I found it: George, WA

satellite view is pretty cool on this one, but I'm not sure how exciting it is from the road.

Well, mostly just a road sign and the classic Eastern WA topography.

In cooler news, we did drive past Sundance (where 'the kid' got his name...). Lauren says, "and his film festival."
