Soap Lake, Wa

Soap Lake- excellent minerals!
lots of people covered in the sand/mud of it's banks.
the banks a bit of a smell on entering the water, which goes away upon getting further out. I waded , Talula crawled, and dipped and dived, under the waters. I was happy just getting my legs wet, imagine the minerals being tapped up like when feeding a plant with a big of cloth dipped in the water pulling the water into the soil.
the water was yes, soapy feeling.
it was such a hot day and this was our first map located stop.
what a relief-
the landscape had become foreign at this point. a lady heard me call Talula's name , she turend around and said "I have a Talula too!"
her Talula (or Tallulah as the case may be) was 15 years old.
My talula loved soap lake - it was her top destination on the whole trip!they are meant to be putting a giant lava lamp into soap lake.
I would  totally live here for a bit- great scenery , peaceful although re development studies for this area are occurring so get in there before the condos and townhomes occur!

From Soap Lake our journey next took us to Lake Lenore then Dry Falls, steam boat rock (which was at that pt more of a drive by) and finally landing for the night at the grand coulee damn.
I am sure we will be back soap lake- i would love to stay next to you and wallow in your smelly sand/mud.
