Scenes from recent trips to Idaho and Oregon, as photographed by me, Leila, and Jimmy Knowles….
McCall, Idaho: my dad gives Karen her first banjo lesson.
McCall: me and my mom.
Bend, Oregon: I looked for famed ultramarathoner Kami Semick, but she had moved to Hong Kong, so this was as close as I got.
Bend: the Bolivian dish “pique a lo macho” (in progress), a favorite of Leila’s Peace Corps friends.
Bend: Kevin Tanksi, our charismatic, knowledgeable, and funny whitewater rafting guide.
Bend: drenched but happy on the Deschutes River.
Bend: a Willa Tree (on the trail to Blow Lake).
Bend: at Blow Lake.
