22 states—4 time zones (northern Idaho is on Pacific Time)—about 7,000 miles later—I’m back in Indian Valley, ID, & very happy to be so. I pulled in yesterday evening before 7:00 p.m. to the sight of Penelope Llama & Mo Alpaca grazing up by the loafing shed. The trip was amazing—but it was time to be home—I felt that acutely yesterday as I was driving thru the snow & rain squalls for 500 miles in Montana & Idaho—Lolo Pass between the two states offered by far the worst travel conditions of the entire journey—a full blown snowstorm swirling & blowing while I was descending the steep curvy grade thru the Bitteroots & down to the Clearwater. After this it was on to Kooskia & Grangeville, with more snow squalls on White Bird Hill, then intermittent rain all the way to New Meadows. But the sun was shining brightly on Indian Valley.
I’ll be back on Sepia Saturday next week—for now, I’ll be resting up & trying to catch up on blog visits!
