Summer Adventure 2021: Week Six, Part Four – The Road from Boise To Stanley, Idaho and The Salmon-Challis National Forest

In Boise we met up with college friends we hadn’t seen in 40 years. Then started north to Stanley on route 21 through the Boise National Forest.

Our travel friends, Tai and Jane were still in Montana buying land and we planned to meet them in Stanley later that day. In the meantime, we were following our college friends Doreen and Danny, to Stanley and camp in the Salmon-Challis National Forest.

Of all the places we have seen in our travels, we especially enjoy Idaho. The beautiful lakes, rivers but the mountains of Idaho are so different and unique. We have seen the Blue Ridge mountains, the Smoky Mountains, the Rockies, etc but we have never seen such unusual mountains as the mountains of Idaho.
