Bill and Debbie of Seattle, Wash., visited Lemhi Pass and the Bitterroot Range in Idaho in August of 2002.
"We caught an amazing sunset on Lehmi Pass, and Bill straddled the headwaters of the Missouri just like it was done almost 200 years ago. We saw a small herd of mule deer grazing on the hillside and met a couple from Florida!
"With our son Jonathan we then traveled the unpaved 105-mile Forest Road 500, which follows the Lewis and Clark Trail across the Bitterroot Range in Idaho. The road mostly follows the same route that Lewis and Clark traveled. The views from along the ridges of the mountains were amazing and endless. All along the road were short hikes to Lewis and Clark's campsites. We were especially impressed by the wildflowers such as bear grass and Indian paintbrush."
