Plans Are Made In Jello

036(Chuck) We enjoyed the Highway 12 trip through Idaho. The whole route was next to several very exciting rivers. First was the majestic Clearwater River which we joined at Lewiston. At Lowell we diverted up the Selway River to explore a boondock site which I had found on a blog. It is a gorgeous site and we may have brought the motorhome to stay there a while, except there was no Verizon signal available. That has become important to us. 029The Lochsa River overtakes the Clearwater at Lowell and we followed it nearly to Lolo Pass. On the East side of the mountain we were soon joined by Lolo Creek which we followed to Lolo and nearby Missoula, MT. We enjoyed being in the mountains in the spring when the rivers are active. There was a great deal of whitewater and a few kayaks on the water. We spent a night at Kamiah, Idaho which I recorded in our RV Log as: 3 June, Kamiah, ID, County Park, FB, $00/$00, N 46.22924 W116.01871, 1180’. Lewis and Clark stayed here exactly 206 years ago, May 14 to June 9, 1806 on their return trip east. That makes me smile. 001Pictured are; the Clearwater River, the co-pilot with her feet up enjoying the Lochsa River and kayakers running the rapids.

At this time we are in Missoula, MT. The original path was Highway 2 which leads through Glacier National Park. Currently the ‘Going To The Sun Road’ is not yet cleared of snow. We wanted to travel that road when it has water falls and without that, we may divert South to Yellowstone Park. We have been in Yellowstone in the fall many times and it would be good to be there in the spring. So, as all Boomers know, “Our Plans Are Made In Jello”.
