Crew cut

We have been through Clarkia a couple times in recent years but it’s been a while since we took the direct route to Freezeout Saddle through the little meadow along the Middle Fork of the Saint Maries River.

 

My own upbringing may skew my perspective but the North Idaho camping trend seems to be away from tents in the mountains to camp trailers and a line of ATVs in “no trespassing” mowed plots along the river. We pass a series of populated green squares, like little Lego towns, reminiscent of recent views along the St. Joe and around Pierce.

 

Personally, we’re still hooked on seeing something new each time we’re out (and preferably each day of the outing) but there may be a future riverbank with our name on it.
