Idaho Brought Many Surprises - and MORE than four mountain ranges to climb!

Day 23 and 24: Travelling from Missoula, Mt to Hailey, Idaho

Wow! The most incredibly beautiful vistas and mountians along Rte. 75 through Idaho. But unfortunately, Miss Hilda had to climb those mountains! HA. She was a trooper and climbed more than FOUR moutain ranges in one day- and crossed a large gorge outside of Twin Falls. Has another 1966 VW Bug ever done this?

Here's a photo Bob took of the jaw-dropping beauty of the area made famous by Hemmingway:

Bob thinks that the drive along Rte. 75 and the Stanley Basin is the most beautiful route in the country!

We reached Beverly Hills. Sort of. Beverly Hills, NEVADA. Ha.
