Salmon Idaho 1805 Days Lewis and Clark
« on: March 22, 2016, 02:33:01 PM »
I took a summer long camping trip thru Idaho and Montana.
I spent 3 weeks outside Salmon Id.
I stopped at the Sacajawea Center where they had people living like they
were in 1805.
They were making baskets the  day I stopped in.

Quick note to add.
Joe Bigly runs the outdoor school, as a bushman he has some serious chops.
He is also a knife maker and  I showed him my Parang .
I told him that I carried it to him in my pack so no one would be alarmed.
He said" this is Salmon Id, you could wear that in the bank and
body would care".

Great pictures of some of my favorite country, EC!  If you have more pictures, we'd sure like to see them.  Did you drive over the Lemhi pass?

No sir, I did not

I will be going back this year, going to Lemhi pass.

E.C., Heather & I drove over it about 10 years ago in a '73 Ford E-100 van.  Beautiful, awe-inspiring view from the top......not as awesome or daunting to us as it probably was to Lewis when he finally peeked over the crest of that last ridge, though! :shocked: :lol:
