Washington State Route 274

On Sunday, October 13, 2013, we drove up Washington State Route 274 because we had nothing we'd rather do.

RCW 47.17.500
State route No. 274

A state highway to be known as state route number 274 is established as follows:

Beginning at a junction with state route number 27 at Tekoa, thence easterly to the Washington-Idaho boundary line.

SR 274 @ SR 27
We started Highway 274 in Tekoa at a junction with SR 27 adjacent to a pastoral scene along Little Hangman Creek. Lovely. Note that when the sign says "US 95: 2 miles", what it actually means is that the Idaho state line is in two miles and that you'll have to ask Idaho how much further to US Route 95. (Answer: 7.5 miles total from here.)

SR 274 east of Tekoa
A mile later, we were halfway done. Well, maybe over halfway. We could already see the grain silos in Idaho.

SR 274 @ Idaho
Quickly, done. Welcome to all that stuff.

Highway 274 is pretty short, but there are ten other state routes in Washington that are shorter, not including routes that haven't been built yet.
