On the Cover: At the end of summer on Latitude 47, swollen kernels of wheat sway and sigh in the wind. The road rolls eight times before vanishing over the horizon, no sign of another car. That doesn't mean this wheatfield is isolated. Washington's soft white wheat (133 million bushels harvested this year) helps connect the state to the rest of the world. Most of it is exported to the Middle East.
