Less-travelled roads to heaven (part 2)
The Seven Devils mountain range, from where the technical top of the canyon is measured. We call it the Seven Satans because alliteration.
Never fear—this is not missing the first 2 pages. Those were part 1. Note the change from "hell" to "heaven". I really do love Moscow that much. Partly because it's great, but partly because of an irrational emotional bond with it which I have no desire to shake.
The "alien landing pad" of Hells Canyon.
The clouds cast lovely shadows.
Nearing sunset at the reservoir of Brownlee Dam.
US-95 by White Bird
Sculpture at the Nez Perce County Courthouse (at Lewiston)
US-95 going north to Moscow. We went up this incline to the Palouse country using the modern 4 lane highway.
Moscow countryside (I regret not bringing my camera on the walk around downtown!)
Looking from the top down at Lewiston and the old two-lane road, which we took down the inline.
Grain storage along US-12
Overlooking the Snake River near Starbuck (no association with Starbucks!)
A railroad bridge over the Snake River.
This is a rough outline of our complete road trip. I pretty much ignored everything between Weiser and Cascade, yes. It's just that dull in comparison to what surrounds it!
