North Fork Idaho

North to Salmon, then North Fork, ID
North to Salmon, then North Fork, ID

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.

Lunch Break

Lunch Stop

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. Arriving Wagonhammer RV Park - North Fork, ID

Tomorrow will be rest and a little exploration of the Park, especially looking forward to the “leash free Dog Island”.


Safe travels, Gary
