Where is that? :fing02:


On US Hwy 12 just east of Kooskia, ID (locals pronounce it "Koosky") looking East - link, below.  Hwy 12 is a National Scenic Highway which follows the Lochsa River, the route Lewis and Clark took in 1804.  There are many interpretive sites along the way.  Hwy 12 is pure bliss - it goes through wilderness area, so no businesses, no residences or road intersections - just 100 miles of fast sweepers.  It's almost like they designed the road with us in mind.  The biggest potential hazard is deer. There's only one place for gas along the way to Lolo and it's off the road. If you miss the sign to turn off you're S.O.L.   It's a beautifully engineered road with good pavement.  It almost makes me want to live in Lewiston, ID or Missoula, MT just so I could ride it anytime I want.  Everyone should ride it at least once.  


Sign location



Route from sign to pass summit (ID/MT border) and on to Lolo, MT.



My photo of pass summit (the other end) looking West in 2006.  They have since changed it from "77 miles" to "99 miles" even though the road has not changed.

Odd - I can see it.  The link is to my profile album  photos - look for the same sign.
