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.

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.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We had dinner at "Pyramid Lake Resort". We were camping at the Wapiti campground within Jasper National Park. We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
