Quick road trip along two powerful Pacific Northwest rivers


Leaving soon from my perch beside the Little Salmon River on a week’s road trip up to Spokane … driving north along side the magnificant Salmon River on Idaho’s Hwy 95 until it veers off near White Bird Summit.

After a night or two in Spokane visiting friends, I’m heading to Portland, taking the slow, scenic route on the north side of the Columbia River Gorge on Hwy 14 until crossing over into Oregon at Biggs. There I’ll catch I-84 to zip the remainder of the way west.

Following a long weekend with family, including my sister, Jo, visiting from Austin, I head southeast to Redmond, Ore., for a stop at the Family Motor Coach Association’s 84th International Convention, (Aug. 11 to 14, 2010) at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center

Plan to post along the way.

  • I sure have enjoyed reading your posts from the Salmon River this summer – can’t wait to read more about your travels through the PNW. On your way to Spokane, if you pass through Lewiston, ID/Clarkston, WA, sure hope you’ll stop in to our office in Clarkston and say hello. We can point you to a fairly fun and tasty little brewery here or you could try the legendary LC-Valley Bite Size! We’ve got 2 or 3 nice RV Parks on the banks of the Snake River that you might enjoy, too!

    Have a safe trip North!
