In theory the trip from Lowman to Winchester, Idaho takes an hour and a quarter. For us it took more like six hours of driving plus stops. The scenery was fabulous! Riggins, Idaho was a great place to pause for lunch at the Salmon River Inn on the banks of the river by the same name. Mid-afternoon, mid-week, after Labor Day, things were quiet but the service was friendly and the sandwiches were savory. Named after local creeks, we enjoyed the Skookumchuck and the Cow Creek. A little further down the road we paused at the White Bird Battlefield Interpretive Center of the Nez Perce National Historic Trail to look out over the area where to the Nez Perce people achieved a victory over US Army troops. Finally our home for the night was Winchester Lake State Park. Site 39 served us as  a delightful overnight but would be quite suitable for a longer stay.

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
