Nez Perce National Historical Park, Idaho

"Nez Perce National Historical Park", Idaho ...normally without the forest fires I am for sure it is a gorgeous national park. Hope we will have a chance to get there again soon when that is the case. I wanted to share views, even with the smoke just so you got the visual of what it was looking like. so so hazy. breathing was tough, all you could smell was smoke. we did stop in the visitor center & even inside there you could smell the smoke. it was crazy wild. 

Forest fires going on out in the west... Washington, Idaho, Oregon (I might be forgetting a few states, but it was wild how the winds would carry the smoke so easily.) ...the hubby & I were so worried that our trip would be ruined. (there always seems to be something, floods in Texas, forest fires, wind storms, mud slides, we are always so worried for the states we go to, it seems so unfair. We have never been to Washington or Oregon, so the trip was set & campground were booked months in advance. I have 2 states left in my USA been there done that list, Hawaii & Alaska are my last 2. here's hoping I can make it happen before I'm 45?, or even sooner before my big 40?) Beth ( :

Hello Beth, the wildfires are scary. Washington and Oregon are beautiful states, especailly the coastlines. I remember seeing some fires while we were in Yellowstone. I loved both Hawaii and Alaska. We missed a lot of Alaska with our trip being a cruise and not being able to see much during our time there. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Beth, ah, to be planning to visit places "before the big 40". We have also traveled throughout the US, but am still missing a few states in the Northwest. We are thinking of a driving vacation this summer, but haven't decided for sure as yet. Washington and Oregon are on the list. So sad to see the fires. Have a good week.

oooooh beth, you are quite young and have traveled to so many places, good for you!!! my niece lived in alaska and she just loved it, her pictures were always amazing!!!

wild fires, so sad...even sadder when started by a tossed cigarette or a campfire left to put itself out. we have had a lot of controlled burns here in new jersey and the smell really takes over the air!!!! i must admit, i am not much of a camper!!!

It is sad to see the fires destroying what was once a beautiful area.I hate to see people affected by this and also all the wildlife that is hurt or maybe even worse.

yeah, that looks like it was very bad! woo hoo on the last two remote states to go!
Such a shame that you couldn't see more, I am sure that it would have been beautiful! xx

This is one place I'd love to see. Strangely I haven't been in Idaho.

I always hate it when there are so many wildfires...I hope you do make it to the other two states.

It is scary when there are forest fires and it one is near them. Hope you make it to the last two spots soon.

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?

Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;
