"Drive" a school bus. Explore an abandoned relic from your childhood. Add your own touch of art to the bus. Short walk from you parking spot.

A broken down, graffiti covered, abandoned school bus!

Located 7 miles southwest of Washtucna, WA resides the social media named & famed, #thatnwbus. It's easy to find, easy to walk to and very close to Palouse Falls; a very popular and stunning Washington attraction.

The bus is right off of Highway 260. If you're headed northeast, it will be on your right. Parking is easier from this direction because you can pull off of the road into the gravel and park without having to cross the highway. From your parking spot, it's only about a 500 foot walk through some tall, dead grass to the bus. Be sure to watch your step as there is sharp rusted metal debris and broken glass laying around in the area as well as inside the bus.

To find the bus easier, the coordinates are 46.694428, -118.425014.

It's a great place to hang out with friends, have a picnic or take some photos at during your trip to Palouse Falls.

Oddly Awesome.

Literally just an old school bus in the middle of nowhere. But that's what makes it so damn intriguing. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes to explore, but I came away thoroughly enjoying the time spent in, on top of, and all around the bus soaking in the moment and taking pictures. Definitely go if you find yourself in SE Washington.
