After a beautiful drive of many hairpin turns, we arrived in a little town called, “North Fork Idaho“. It is a town rich in history as Lewis and Clark made their through this area and along the Salmon River on their way to the coast of Oregon. The campground we stayed at, “River’s Fork Lodge and RV park” was stunning. It was owned by a native Californian who wanted to get out of good ole’ CA. He looked exactly like Eric Clapton (in fact, was invited into many concerts with the bouncers thinking he WAS Eric Clapton!) and was so hospitable. The RV park had only eight spots, each being right on the Salmon River. What a view to wake up to each morning!

The town of Salmon was about 20 miles down the road. This little town’s claim to fame is that it is the BIRTHPLACE of Sacagawea! Pretty darn cool! We visited the town and took an interactive tour of the Sacagawea Center. We all learned so much and feel like we knew the gal personally! Next door to the RV park was a funky little coffee shop that was a favorite stop for all the local hunters and fisherman. We had desert there one night and enjoyed homemade pie. Yum!
