The major industry in Lewiston, Idaho is paper, and if you’ve ever been in a town that’s dominated by a paper mill, you know That Smell. Apparently the natives get used to it after a while. We sure didn’t during the night we spent there as part of Big Trip ’07 – or maybe we were just grumpy about the speeding ticket we got there. (Did we mention it was the end of the month?)
Anyway, we’ve combined Lewiston and sister city Clarkston, Washington with another pair of sister cities 30 miles to the north, the college towns of Pullman, Washington and Moscow, Idaho, to create what we call the Lewiston-Moscow market, subject of this week’s update here on Toppy and over at Tower Site of the Week.
(The locals sometimes call it the “Quad Cities,” but we didn’t see any Moline or Bettendorf there…)
