    Have neglected this thread for a while. Four of us spent a week camping and traveling the backcountry of northern Idaho. It was quite a trip! We got out of the mountains and headed home a couple of days before a large, early snowstorm hit the area. Since then I've been back to walking my dog here in town. I'll toss in a few photos from our ramble through Idaho. Did a fair bit of walking, tried to get a couple of miles a day in, but our backroad travel schedule pretty much consumed the daylight hours.

    Oh - I augmented my compact 9mm handgun with my 45/70 Marlin for the trip - as we were camping in grizzly country.

    This is the Lolo Motorway, a 100+ mile dirt route from Pierce to Powell, Idaho. It traces the route taken by Lewis and Clark, guided by natives, in 1806. 4wd was helpful, but not absolutely necessary on the motorway. Anything with decent ground clearance, good gearing and good tires could handle the route - in good weather. At places like this though, going over the edge might be a final mistake. Long way down:


    And this is on the Magruder Corridor - which passes through a huge, otherwise roadless and remote area. This was named for the Magruder Massacre, 1863:








    Our backcountry rigs, except my white Jeep of course!


    Dog did real well, his first camping trip. He's not much of a navigator though:

    OK, cheating a bit as I took this shot a few weeks back on a quick visit, but it was a walk by the sea. Bay of Biscay. France. So thats the Atlantic, if you look really carefully you may see the US eastern seaboard. Or not. Kinda rugged coastline. Good area for a sit and a think. Changing light is cause it was evening, and the sun was on its way down.

    Well my Newcomb wagon ride is over for another year.
    My 4 guest loved it. Especially my buffalo chili, on a very cold and windy day. In the north country. Colors are almost peeked.
