It was another delightfully, slightly downhill ride Saturday, from Kamiah, ID to Clarkston, WA. Following US Hwy 12 as it follows the Clearwater River, I saw deer frolicking on the opposite shore, watched fishermen vying for big salmon and osprey tending there nests. This is the river that greeted Lewis & Clark after their arduous journey over the Bitterroot Mtns. One historical marker commemorated the spot they stopped to build 5 dugout canoes in 2 week.
