Today was a travel day. We headed south toward our next destination. The drive took a couple of hours. Most of the scenery was like a patchwork of wheat fields, canola fields, and the green grass of the cattle ranches. It was so open and peaceful. Blue skies overhead with a few clouds and lots of wide open spaces.
Hell’s Gate State Park is just outside of Lewiston. Could be it’s called Hell’s Gate because of the hot weather? Its gonna be sunscreen all day – every day here. The park is really nice and only 4 miles from town, a real contrast from our last campground. The Snake River runs along the edge of Hell’s Gate and the Clearwater River isn’t far from here either. Hopefully my replacement pontoons will arrive this week. The park has agreed to let them be delivered here so that was a huge plus. Then we will be set to go!
