Northwest Passage National Scenic Byway

In Idaho, US-12 is the Northwest Passage National Scenic Byway. This is a very pretty drive with lots of things to stop and see. This time, however, the only thing we stopped to explore was the Lochsa Historical Ranger Station. Before US-12 was constructed, this was a remote ranger station. The log buildings and their furnishings are original. There is a short walking tour throughout the grounds explaining the purpose of all the buildings.

We ended up tonight at the Lewis-Clark Resort, one of our RPI parks...we were able to get one of the very few sites where we would be able to set up our satellite Internet dish! After exploring the town of Kamiah a little, however, we've decided that the next time we come here, we'll stay at the city park which is free for dry camping, or $5 per night for electricity.

Miles driven: 110.8
GPS coordinates: N46 12.772 / W116 00.286
