Both these pictures are taken from Lily Snode's homestead site. Until the early 1990's all of Camas Meadows was in private ownership. Lily's last will and testament assured that these lands would be preserved by specifying the property be sold to the Nature Conservancy. This later resulted in the establishment of Camas Meadows Natural Area Preserve by the State of Washington. Over the past 15 years additional acquired acreage put most of the meadow in public ownership. For more information on Camas Meadows Natural Area see the web address in the previous blog entry.

Lily's homestead is still a special spot, even though the cabin was removed shortly after purchase by the Conservancy. In spring, the domestic Iris flowers still bloom and are the only reminder that this spot was home to Lily.

The photos display this part of the meadow, which is a short five minute walk or ski from the lodge. Lily Snode's old homestead is a very special place within Camas Meadows.

The next three weekends are still open for reservation. Sorry, the mid-week special is taken for the week of Feb 5th and President's Day weekend is booked.
