Roughly the route travelled on the trip described in this post.

BIrders often call a species of bird that they see for the first time ever a "lifer," or a "life bird." I recently returned fron a road trip in Eastern Washington state, and on the trip travelled to areas I had never visited, hence traveling on "Life Roads." I definately took a "Life Ferry" to cross the Columbia River from Inchelieum.

On the trip, primarily a birding trip, we explored three counties in Washington I had done very little birding previously, looking for and finding good numbers of "county lifers" for birds, and enjoyed other cool stuff like this moose:

and this Black Bear:
