— Pheasants on highway 12. A tire blew out on a semi-truck hauling a gooseneck trailer full of beautiful pheasants. The load tipped over at mile marker 111 on Highway 12 just above Lowell which is located at mile marker 97. The beautiful birds were wearing blinders so they are handicapped as far as survival. But locals at the scene said they were able to see around the masks they wear as the ones that weren’t recaptured seemed to be all right and finding their way around the environment they were thrown into!

Canadian kayakers are all over the surf wave on the Lochsa this past week, and the Canadian geese are pairing off at the confluence this early spring, as well.

Two roads, the Selway road and Swiftwater, have some rock slides. If you plan on going out to horn hunt, be sure to check conditions.

Got a couple of big fat juicy Wilderness Burgers over the weekend, so yes, the cafe in Lowell is open.

Pheasants, Canadians, horn hunting, rock slides, juicy burgers — that’s all I got this week.

ICLP is seen here in action outside my office door at Three Rivers!
