SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. 

It was an amazing sight. It looked like a Bob Ross painting. But there was no better time of year to check out that view than on a hot August summer night. The fields were golden brown, ready for harvest, and you could see combines and trucks working from dusk til dawn and beyond. 

Farming is part of our region's heritage and harvest is certainly a sight to behold. We know there are lots of farmers out there and we want to see your harvest pictures! Whether you're driving a grain truck or a combine, send your pictures to newstips@khq.com or post them on our Facebook page!  Happy harvest everyone!

    SEATTLE (AP) - Even as the Trump administration seeks to roll back Obama-era rules to curb greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, Washington state is forging ahead with its own rules to cap carbon pollution from large polluters.  But the state faces legal challenges as it begins requiring large industrial facilities to gradually reduce carbon emissions over time to combat climate change.
