Morgan Bar BLM
Chief Looking Glass FW
Missoula was where we were headed but we decided to break up the drive a bit more. We were excited to stay at some BLM land on the Salmon River just outside of Carmen, Idaho for a few days. More breathtaking scenery.
The only other person across from us.
I love how Idaho puts these signs up all along the Lewis and Cark route.Campendium. The last people there reported 4 bars of LTE. Once we got there we were so surprised to see we did indeed have great LTE, 5 bars! Being across the river instead of around the mountain gave us a straight line of site of the antenna. Perfect. Another small campground on the river with only 2 other there. We chose the best site, #4, right on the river with gorgeous trees in bright color all around us.
There are nice firepits here too so we enjoyed more fires before it gets too cold out to sit by one.
I had a ball hiking along the river taking in all the color, water, mountains and reflections.
Found a bird's nest that had fallen on the ground.
Hurley had a ball because he could run all over. Funny how he stays out of the river now. So cold.
The reds were stunning against the dark mountains in the background under the stormy skies.
When we drove up to Missoula through many cute western towns.
