News for the Week

This week's news at My Itchy Travel Feet includes a visit to the camas lilies in Packer Meadow at Lolo Pass, Idaho.

Looking over Alan’s shoulder in Packer Meadow.

From Donna:

Earlier this week, Alan and I played hooky to photograph the camas lilies in bloom in Packer Meadow at Lolo Pass, Idaho. Each June, the blue blooms fill the meadow, attracting photographers and nature lovers alike. It’s a wonderful opportunity to practice macro photography.

This meadow has also seen plenty of history. The Lewis and Clark expedition camped at Glade Creek on the edge of Packer Meadow on their way west. And the Nez Perce still carry on the tradition of harvesting the camas roots for food.

A morning of playing hooky combined with a couple of days spent on one of those routine medical procedures that all boomers dread means that publishing has been slow this week at My Itchy Travel Feet. Next week, we’ll be back to normal for more articles to inspire your itchy travel feet. Are you curious about driving the Cassiar Highway in northern British Columbia? Stay tuned!

From Nicole:

Lucky Nicole! She’s on her second week of family vacation in Mallorca. Sure hopes she brings back some great sunrise and sunset photos.
