Ever wonder why they call them the Rolling Hills? This video, from the top of Steptoe Butte shows the unique landscape of the Palouse Region.
It appears that this video was taken during our harvest season, late July to mid August. The golden fields that look like they have tire tracks in them have been cut, those that don't are uncut. The darker brown, dirt colored fields are what we call fallow, meaning that the ground is "resting" for the year. This helps to ensure good soil quality for optimal crop growth and nutrients.
You can see some of our farmland in the distance, but what you see at the foot of the butte is not our land.
We like to call this God's Country!
