September 4th ~ Salmon River Scenic Byway
*Our camp at Wagonhammer Campground (North Fork, ID) was lovely with our site right on the water.
By the time we pulled out on the morning of the 4th, we had the place to ourselves. There is definitely a plus to traveling after Labor Day weekend.
Salmon River Scenic Byway – Following US Highway 93 from North Fork, Idaho through Salmon and on to Challis, where we turned onto Idaho State Highway 75.
On the drive, we experienced another picture postcard day; gifted with a variety of stunning scenery, blue skies, warm weather, and empty roads.
This area is renowned for fly fishing, white water rafting, hiking, kayaking and simply enjoying the natural beauty.
Along the way we crossed the 45th parallel which is halfway between the Equator and the North Pole.
Catching up with Jan and Mark (my sister and brother-in-law), we took a few minutes to admire the Salmon River that we had been following for most of the day.
Coming next: Stanley, Idaho ~ Redfish Lake and Stanley Lake
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that our skies are no longer smoke-filled and that we can more fully appreciate the beauty of Idaho.
