GOOD MORNING CAMPERS................!!!!!!!!



First of all......a big thank you to those of you are following me along this little trip of ours.

I again, apologize for not being able to visit each and every one of you as much as I might like.....but the WI-FI when traveling makes it almost impossible to visit as many blogs as I would like.

 Anyway.......we are now in IDAHO and this is how this part of the country looks  along Hwy 93.  It is breathtaking.....wouldn't you agree.

I'm a big city I find it truly amazing that there is still so much BEAUTIFUL LAND throughout our country that is still in its natural form.

Most of you probably know that our highways often follow along the old trails.
This little spot above is a tribute to the Oregon Trail followed by many of the pioneers when settling our beautiful country.  Each vendor in town plants a little spot of this  memorial garden and tends to it lovingly.

Hwy 93 follows the Salmon River and that has been our route......we have passed by beautiful majestic mountains and the Craters of the Moon, which are huge fields of lava flows caused by a volcanic eruption many, many, many years ago.

We are currently camped here.....right beside the Salmon Salmon, Idaho.
We will be staying at this beautiful spot for several days.

Next stop.....Missoula, Montana.
