The Palouse and the Surrounding Region
Pullman is in the Palouse Hills of eastern Washington. Conditions are ideal for growing wheat, and this is one of the most productive wheat-growing regions in the world. To the east of Pullman the foothills of the Rocky Mountains begin. To the west lie dry grasslands, then eventually the cascades & the coast.
