2010 The Great Oregon, Idaho, and Montana Backroad/Ghost Town Tour

This was quite the trip.  I made it in June, but still ran into quite a bit of snow.  That's the way it is up north, you really can't get into the woods without snow for only maybe two-three months out of the year.  First I went to Promise Oregon a place that my great-great uncle helped settle after coming over, you guess it, the Oregon Trail.  You'll see the gravestone of John Phillips at the Promise Cemetery.  Then through Troy Oregon crossing into Washington then Idaho.  Through St. Maries down the St. Joe river to Avery where I found a guy who went out and filled his grizzly tag during his lunch break.  Next day up the old Railroad grade/Moon Pass rd to Wallace, Idaho.  Took a tiny side trip to Gem and Burke then back to Wallace on to Montana.  Down to Lolo pass, quick side trip to Big Hole battlefield, then down the pass into Idaho.  The rest was down between Challis and Stanley Idaho.  Lots of snow still in the mountains, so couldn't go everywhere I wanted to go, but it is vast country there and would go again in say July or August if the opportunity presents itself.  Enjoy!
