Hi everyone! Short blog for today – Pete and I spent most of our day around Orofino. It’s hard to say that I’ve lived in the valley for 9 years but have never been to Orofino until now. For those of you who don’t live in the LC Valley, Orofino is about 41 miles from where I live.
It was one of the first clear and beautiful days in a while so we decided to take advantage of it. It’s been awhile since the air quality has been nice due to all the wildfires so it was so refreshing to able to breathe in fresh air!
Our first stop was at Dworshak Dam. The dam is in Ahsahka which is literally about 5 or 6 miles from Orofino. It’s about a 10 to 15 minutes drive to the top of the viewing point. The visitor center was closed so we couldn’t really get any closer to the dam but we still got an alright view from the viewpoint.
After seeing the dam, we drove to the center of town and ended up near the Best Western Hotel. There was a fair actually going on while we were there but we didn’t really spend much time there.
Here are some pics I took of the Clearwater River and Pete flying the drone.
A common misconception about Idaho is that there’s nothing here except for potatoes. If anyone actually spends some time to travel through Idaho you’d realize that there’s so much to see!
There’s many parts of the state that are raw, untouched, and natural. Personally, I love all the trees. But seriously, it’s beautiful in Idaho.
When I moved to the valley from California, I really wasn’t happy about it. 9 years later and this place has grown on me so much that I have no shame in calling Idaho my home!
Don’t knock it until you try it! 😉
It was a beautiful day and I’m so happy that the smoke cleared up. Thank you mother nature for the rain that we got today – we definitely needed it!!
If you’re wondering why we’re always doing drone stuff….. check out our Facebook page DroneHub. We’re also on Instagram as DroneHub.IFT. We’re still in our early stages but if you’re interested in drones, take a quick peek at it! Videos we took from the dam will be up soon on the Facebook page so watch out for that!
Hope you enjoyed these pictures! I’m always happy to answer any questions you guys have so don’t be afraid to shoot me a message.
