Following Lewis and Clark Through Idaho

From Missoula, we moved west along Highway 12. We spent a few days at Jack's Saloon, just east of the Montana/Idaho border. The highlight here is Lolo Hot Springs, where Lewis and Clark stopped on their journey west. I don't think it looked like this, though...

There is a very hot pool -

And an outside cooler pool.

Goats were the lawn mowers here.

We also visited a couple other Lewis and Clark sites - Glade Camp, where they camped -

And we had lunch at Packer Meadows, the same place that Lewis and Clark stopped for lunch. Our Wisconsin Packer fans really enjoyed it!

Then we did an individual slow trip through Idaho on Highway 12. I stopped at the Lochsa Historical Ranger Station, which remains much as it was in the early 1900s.

There's an old crossing of a creek that fortunately was closed.

I spent one night at McKay's Bend Campground, beautiful and right on the Clearwater River. We're across the Continental Divide, so it's all downhill from here!
