Idaho - part 2

A travel blog entry by jillstravels


... We also got to see some of the local music talent at the Redfish Lodge and had an extended evening with some fellow car campers who had been on the road for over 5 months. Chris enjoyed some east coast banter with his new found friend from NYC who was just about relocate to Seattle. The complaints of west coast pizza, bagels and sandwiches were predictable.

Eventually we headed north - following the Salmon River up the interstate 75 continuing ...

... the left bank is cooler because it is in shadow most of the day and it supports more plant life and retains more water. The right bank gets more direct sunlight all day and is drier. It was interesting to watch the landscape and geology change is just a few miles on the water.

We passed by the Stub Creek Camp, and the Legend Creek Pictographs because the poison ivy was too bad. We also passed Upper and Legend Creek Camps and the Spindle Creek Campsite. ...

Chipmunks and vistas

... identified in the case of .... being mauled by a bear ....... or shot by an eager hunter? Anyway, starting at 6680 foot we started our upward climb. It was awesome, glorious, one of the best walks we have ever done. We started in pine forest, seeing only glimpses of the mountains ahead. Then, as we continued climbing, we eventually came to some meadows. Crossing creeks we continued upward, passing Alpine Lake and going up the mountain. We ...
