After I put Angela on a plane in Kalispell, I drove down to Missoula to pick up another friend for the second part of my great Northwest adventure. Our plan was to watch the Great American Eclipse at Cascade Lake in Idaho, then to do a short river trip on the Middle Fork Salmon River. In between, we'd enjoy some scenic drives, a few delicious hot springs and 144 yoga sun salutations (to celebrate the eclipse, of course). It was a fun journey, and though I was getting homesick at the end of the 3 weeks away, I have to say that I fell in love a little with Montana and Idaho. What spectacular country!

I also did a drive through the National Bison Range outside of Missoula. What a great opportunity to see some of the American land animals up close and personal. I was there near closing (sunset) so I was treated to animals very close to the road.

I particularly enjoyed being able to spend so much time on the water on this trip. I love hiking, but there's a peace that comes from floating that you just can't duplicate. While I don't see myself becoming a whitewater specialist, I did have a great time paddling on the Salmon for a short time. Next time I'll be braver and hit some of the bigger rapids in the ducky!
