What zone am I really in?

I can't find my Sunset hardiness zone guide, and I thought I remembered that we are in Zone 2, but this site also said I'm Zone 5, based on zip code. I am in eastern Washington, 3000' elevation. Anyone know for sure what this zone truly is? Thanks much!

Here is the link to the Sunset zone guide, kimb_1. It probably is more accurate than a USDA one anyway, since that only takes into consideration your lowest winter temperature.

According to Sunset, I'm in zone 34, and it gives a good description of the climate we really have here.

Here is a link that might be useful: zone map

Dear Jetred,
The Zone Map that Cady recommended is correct. I am in zone 34 but also in zone "5" according to other maps. Hope you had a good season.
