Lochsa 2008

Last week I found myself sick with seasonal allergies and a lovely sinus infection. It came just in time for some scheduled rest days -- our annual pilgrimage to the Lochsa River in Idaho. We left town the Friday before Memorial Day and drove 10 hours through to camp. It's really only a 8-9 hour drive, but we got sidetracked (yet again) in Walla-Walla looking for a place to eat. I HATE that town. It's a time sink hole.

This is me being totally fed up in Walla-Walla-Crap-Crap-Town:
We showed up to the welcoming crew: California Kelly, California Eric, Montana Billy, and Montana Dano-the-Mano. Some college friends from Bozeman also rolled through our camp shortly after arrival. The sun was shining, so we set up camp, then pulled out the chairs and some col' beers. Ahhhh, vacation...

The entire weekend was filled with tons of sunshine, great company, some kayaking/rafting, LOTS of carnage at Lochsa Falls, and plenty of relaxation. It was sad when we had to pack up and make the trek back home.

Hey...Google Alerts sent me a link to this blog, and I thought I'd make a couple of suggestions for food places next time you're in the area I call home: Walla Walla & surrounding areas. Take 'em or leave 'em, but here they are - they might save you some time next time you roll through town.

1. Sweet Basil Pizzeria (you can even get personalized calzones): 5 S. 1st Avenue (off of Main Street).

2. Stone Soup (soups, sandwiches, salads): 105 E. Alder St (one street south of Main Street)

3. La Casita (delicious, affordable Mexican): 315 S. 9th St (WA 125 turns into 9th Street once you get into town)

4. Mill Creek Brew Pub (sandwiches and more, plus they brew their own beer): 11 S. Palouse St. (follow Main street east and it's right in front of you)

Hope this gives you some ideas for next time. :o) Maybe next time you won't hate it here as much.
