Washidatanhoton: that's the name Denise and I gave the area we visited in the fall of 2019. We made a loop through the region, starting in Spokane in eastern Washington (”Wash”), going east through the northern part of Idaho (”ida”), then on to northwestern Montana during the middle of our stay (”tan”), down into the southern part of Idaho near the Snake River Plain (”ho”), and back to Spokane (”ton”). I jokingly told people that it was an old Native American word for the northwest part of the country.
Like a number of our trips, we had to make modifications on the fly due to unusual circumstances. We managed to make those changes without missing out on almost all that we planned to see and we also wound up seeing some things we hadn’t expected. In all, the trip to Washidatanhoton turned out to be one of our more enjoyable trips we’ve had. The region is full of fascinating things to see and learn for those willing to look beyond potatoes (which was something we didn’t see).
