At a Glance

Youíve got to hand it to those Spokane Indians. In 1881, the white man tried to force them onto the Colville Reservation, but the Spokane dug in their heels, refusing to sever ancestral ties to their traditional lands. Their strong Character is reflected in the collection of roads across this undeveloped territory. Scenery has probably benefited, too ó pine forest still covers most of the roadside even though the underlying terrain varies from flat and grassy to rolling and rocky. There are even some panoramic views when you drop down to and along the upper west bank of the Spokane River. Pavement, of course, has never been part of the bandís rich tradition, but the Engineering is modern enough. You can tell that Twistiness and Remoteness are still highly valued by the Spokane; in painstakingly preserving them throughout almost the entire road, these first Americans are an inspiration. Itís WSDOT thatís the white manís burden.
