The approach towards the grain silos while driving south on Highway 172 suggests that the highway will pass right between the two silos.
The perception is maintained and enhanced by the rise in the road that obscures the presence of Highway 2.
Highway 172 comes to an end at the intersection with Highway 2 so blasting at 60 mph between the silos does not happen.
I do wonder if the silos were laid out as they were by accident or by design to provide an illusion for those approaching from the north. It is one of several features of Highway 172 that I enjoy. The other features are crossing the former edge of the Okanogan ice lobe Withrow moraine.
