This beautiful marble statue of an angel graces the community cemetery on a hill over looking downtown Colfax, the county seat of Whitman County in the heart of Washington State’s premier wheat growing region, the Palouse. A second angel statue is found here as well and is very similar in size and pose. Colfax is a quiet, friendly town of about 3,000 and Highway 195 runs through town as its Main Street in a north/south direction. At the north end of Main, Highway 195 meets Highway 26 heading west towards Othello. Highway 195 continues on it northward path toward Spokane, ‘The Capital of the Inland Empire,’ a couple hours away. The confluence of the north and south forks of the Palouse River is also in this town and the River runs through the heart of town as well. A very nice hotel The Wheatland Inn (Best Western) is a wonderful place to say, so very clean and a helpful, nice staff. If you would like to visit the Palouse for day trips, photography trips or just passing through Colfax deserves your time as an over night guest, you’ll be glad you did! The downtown has a quaint business district, and the community cemetery above downtown is a quiet, contemplative place to walk and think. I’ve spent several Spring Breaks in Colfax while on week long photography trips and thoroughly enjoyed my time. I hope to be able to go again.
