This a wonderful country highway that runs along the Salmon River for over 100 miles.... mesmerizing. Make your partner drive so you can look at the beautiful river. Quaint towns of log cabins here and there.

It is the best drive along the Salmon River. The views along the river are simply the best, with several campgrounds along the way.
