Back to Wawawai

Besides coping with an acyclovir side-effect (pharmaceutical producers like to call these “effects the product is not marketed to produce”) last Saturday, I responded with more exuberance than I thought I had to my husband’s proposal that we go to Wawawai. The pleasant Whitman County destination is for us just a half-hour’s drive, and features a moderate walk in view of always-beautiful Snake River Canyon.

Wawawai, which meant “council grounds” to its early inhabitants, the Nez Perce people, became an orchard community and was later flooded to develop Lower Granite Dam. I wrote a blog account last May when we first visited Wawawai; I see from my former account that lupines were in bloom; they weren’t up to it this early. We enjoyed a happy time there, walking around looking at the bunchgrasses, thistle skeletons, and arrowleaf balsamroot flowers.
