The Slice

Sunday drives

“When we arrived in Spokane in 1990, we looked for ways to enjoy the beauty of the Northwest,” wrote Joyce Mann. “One Sunday, the SR published a Barn Tour, with a suggested route and specific old barns in the Palouse to admire.

“Our teenagers in the back seat, we set out on a Sunday afternoon, not realizing how big the region really was and how few gas stations and fast food places would be open. Driving on fumes, more and more hungry as the afternoon wore on, we all just started saying 'Barn!' to any likely building we passed.

“The teens grew up and left home, but we still can text 'Barn!' to one another and get a good laugh.”
