After visiting my 2nd cousin's wife in Lewiston, Idaho, we traveled across the state on Route 12, which follows the Lochsa River. This is a very windy road right along side the river with beautiful mountains and trees all around. This is the area that Lewis and Clark traveled on their exploration of the west. Also, the movie "The River Runs Through It" was filmed somewhere near this area.
The drive was rather nerve wracking. However, the beauty of God's creation was amazing! The trip has been very good so far.
We stayed at this National Forest on Saturday night.
This is a view of Lochsa River early on Sunday morning in the campground. It's almost hard to believe how much wilderness there is in our country.
When we got to Montana yesterday, the weather turned hot. We didn't want that! We will be meandering across Montana and the next major destination is Mount Rushmore! I hope to hit a couple quilt shops this week! It's been a while since I've been to one, so it's time.
