There aren’t many communities in America that take the definite article (in English, at least – sorry, Los Angeles and Las Vegas!)
But this week, our Big Trip ’06 retrospective pulls into one of the few that does: The Dalles OR, a nice little town in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge and the hub of a mini-market that also includes other nice little towns such as Hood River OR and Goldendale WA.
And while we didn’t actually make it over there to get tower pictures, we’ve got some sound from another new-to-Toppy mini-market, Pendleton OR, which we’re going to define as also including the Hermiston-Umatilla area up closer to the Columbia River. Most of this sound (plus one more ID, which we’ve misplaced – argh!) was taped from Walla Walla WA, whose towers we’ll see Friday over at Tower Site of the Week, and whose audio we’ll hear in this space precisely one week from today.
(And check out a few pictures of towers and studios from Hood River and The Dalles on Tower Site of the Week, too, while you’re at it!)
