I recall him saying it was 2 hours east of Spokane on HWY 2 - except that
HWY 2 does NOT go due east, and I'm not convinced it even passes thru Spokane.
However, there IS a highway which goes due east from Spokane, and 2 hours
takes you to St Regis, which is in Montana.

If HWY 2 is actually the one going north from Spokane then two hours will
take you to Canada.  Or almost, if you obey the 55mph limit.

However, the climate in that area is NOTHING like the Twin Peaks climate.
It's still deserty and cold and not a lot of rainfall.

Also the indians in that area are not the same ones described in an earlier
