I chose to travel Highway 28 most of the way North from Shelley, ID to North Fork, ID to avoid the Interstates and see some scenery, I was not disappointed. The traffic was almost non-existent, sometimes intervals of 10 minutes with no cars anywhere.
A Difference Traveling
Vast stretches of farmlands and meadows were predominant as I started out in Shelley. It felt unusual as when traveling in Utah, the mountains were very close as I passed through valleys. I still could see mountains, but in the very far distance on both sides. As I traveled further north the mountains closed in and I started to climb. The Workhorses’ engine was having to work a little to pull the six tons of the Coach hitched behind. I was able to stop along the way and snap a few photos to share with you, something I usually can’t do on the Interstate highways.
We took our time, stopping for lunch in the middle on nowhere. What better backdrop for a picnic. The nice thing about towing your home is everything is right there when you need it, cold lunch prepared right from the refrigerator, crank up the radio for ambiance and a nice clean restroom whenever necessary.
I took frequent breaks and enjoyed the day traveling.
Arrive @ Wagonhammer RV Park
Early afternoon I pulled into Wagonhammer RV Park. Probably one of the nicest campgrounds I have found so far. Right on the Salmon River about twenty miles north of Salmon, Idaho and several miles South of North Fork, Idaho.
Tomorrow will be rest and a little exploration of the Park, especially looking forward to the “leash free Dog Island”.
Safe travels, Gary
