We've been in the Lochsa River corridor for the past couple of days. First, we set up a table and talked to visitors at the busy Lolo Pass visitor center right on the MT/ID border. This area is famous for two important historical trails. The Nez Perce Trail and the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discover trail both pass right over Lolo pass and into the Bitterroot Mountains. We traveled down highway 12 along the Lochsa to the Wilderness Gateway Campground for a campfire talk, and then went to a popular trail head that leads to Jerry Johnson Hot Springs to talk to Sunday hot springers. The photo above is Warm Springs Creek on the way to the hot springs. Did you know that Idaho has more hot springs than Oregon, Washington, and Montana combined! Now we're back in Missoula and getting ready to head down to the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho to meet Idaho State Advocate Paul Holle and his campers at Camp Perkins and Luther Heights Bible Camp.
