Lewiston. Idaho: pretty in pink

Pink dogwoods are in bloom in Lewiston
Lewiston, Idaho, a town on the Snake River, truly blossoms in the spring when dogwood trees begin to bloom. Pink blossoms are everywhere, with a few white dogwoods thrown in for good measure.

Dogwood trees are everywhere, in city parks, lining city streets and filling the yards of homes. Indeed, the largest trees can be found in the yards of older homes and seem to be Lewiston's version of the mighty oak.

Thi natural beauty does not go unnoticed, as Lewiston celebrates its dogwood festival every April. The celebration centers around arts and culture, with a fun run, quilt show and other activities.

Lewiston is named after the faed explorer, Meriwether Lewis of the Lewis and Clark expedition. right across the river is Clarkston, named for his co-explorer, George Clark.
