Last Sunday, my friend and I dug camas near Spangle, Washington, in a place where my family has harvested roots for generations and has maintained a positive relationship with two generations of landowners. I only recently came to discover that place, but I have fallen in love with beauty and history of the plants. 

When we arrived, we were greeted by mulesear sunflowers in full bloom (Wyethia amplexicaulis).

A lone whitetail deer walked toward us, seemingly undisturbed by our presence.  

It was a beautiful, perfect day for gathering camas.
