"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.

Not as majestic as you’d think, but still really cool

I go to school near the area and finally made it down during the summertime. We didn’t go at a spectacular time of day (sunrise or sunset) but it was still pretty fun to climb on the bus and take pictures. Would recommend if you’re up that way!

FB page. ThatNWbus ..... like and share photos 🌞

I live within 10 miles of this bus....it has been a landmark ever since I moved here in 1974. Recently it has become much more interesting.... taking on a character all it's own. Now DNR (Department of Natural Resources) is ready to move it to the scrap yard due to the fact the land is leased and cows have joined the bus. I am involved with the Washtucna Museum and we are hoping to convince DNR to gift it to us. We will then move it to the intersection of 261 and 26. From the bus you would continue N to Washtucna. Go to the end of Main and you will come to Hwy 26. You will see thannwbus there if all goes well. Stop by and feel free to continue the Art. A park area will be developed next. :) Lee Ann
