Wildflowers bounce back after getting buried by Snow!

On Friday it snowed.  Camas ended up with about six inches of fresh snow.  It buried all the wildflowers that had started blooming.  However, by Sunday they had emerged from the snow with the message that spring is just around the corner.

For good measure the blue bells joined the Glacier Lilies in proclaiming the end to winter.  Six inches of snow is a lot of snow, but come spring it melts away rather quickly.  Camas was a field of white on Friday, today it is waiting for the elk, the Sandhill Cranes and the rest of the 135 varieties of wildflowers to arrive in the meadows.

We had rays of sunshine today, but Three Brothers Mountains just peaked in and out of the clouds.  The weather should improve by the coming weekend.  This time of year we tend to have more sunny and warm days than cloudy days, but it is Spring in the mountains and anything and everything does occur. 

We are booked from April 5th through April 12th.  The last weekend in April is also booked, as well as the weekend of May 13th.  June 2nd through June 8th and July 12th through July 19th.   Memorial Day weekend is still open.  Book now for the wildflowers of May.

As always, you may contact us through the web site for booking your reservation:
