Travel Blogs from McCall
The drive from Idaho Falls, ID was too long! We drove about 7 hours, stopping at Craters of the Moon. I wish we would have been better prepared when we arrived, because there were all sorts of paths to walk through this interesting landscape. But basically it is just like the volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii so really didn't need to spend a lot …
Did a 20 mile white water rafting trip of the lower main Salmon River.
Met with the rafting crew at 7.30 am for our drive up to the drop in spot.
Was a beautiful sunny day of about 85 degrees with a few clouds shading us from the hot sun. Initially there were 6 passengers in the large raft with one single seater inflatable ...
... we also drove through the Nez Perce Indian reservation on this leg. This tribe being famous for being the last stand outs of all Indian tribes against the US army. We hit Grangeville which really should be named Strangeville as the only past times I could ascertain the inhabitants engaged in was shooting, stabbing and drinking...not necessarily in that order.
This was the gateway to Hells Canyon, which lived up to its name due ...
... Which is a famous wine from France. While we finished talking, I noticed that Scott had been dragged down to the water with the children. The view of them that I saw as I approached them was magical, out of a movie or something. Scott was playing with these 3 kids, with the two dogs prancing and dancing with excitement. In that moment I not only stopped to take a picture, but I stopped to take it all in, that Scott will one day be a wonderful father and ...
... 150 years ago. Those pioneer folks took the easiest route from Missouri all the way to Oregon City and I-84 follows a good portion of it all the way to Salt Lake City, UT.
We figured that we had outsmarted the rain and stop for the night at Hot Lake RV Park located 5 miles south of La Grande, OR. Alas, no we did not. We set up and hunkered down for the night. Our 217 mile trip driving in the rain was not too stressful but we were definitely ready to stretch ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsShore Lodge McCall
Shore Lodge is the best place to stay in McCall if you don't mind paying a little extra to be pampered. It's a beautiful hotel located on the beautiful Payette Lake. Valet service, complimentary glass of wine at check in and a super friendly helpful staff. My husband and I had a room with a king-size bed, refrigerator with bottled water, and a Keurig coffee maker with Starbucks coffee pods. Restaurants and lounge on the premises, of which we took advantage of for dinner and breakfast by the lakeside. To top it off, while we were downstairs for dinner, our bed was turned down, smooth jazz was turned on and cookies were placed bedside, plus a menu and instructions on how to order breakfast in-room for the next morning. This hotel will be on our list to return often for a relaxing get-a-way.
