We left Kamiah today and headed up the Clearwater river. It was a nice ride without a lot of traffic and nice weather. At Lowell the Clearwater river separated into the Lochsa and the Selway rivers. We followed the Lochsa.
It looked like a continuation of the Clearwater. Very pretty. It was a gradual climb so we made pretty good time. We stopped at Syringa and got lunch. Bev and Manuel stopped by just as we were leaving, chatted a while and then they went ahead of us.
A couple of miles up the road we saw the van with Bev sprawled out on a lawn chair by it soaking up the sun. Joy thought that was funny which kept her going for a while.
We met up with them again just before the Lochsa Historic Ranger Station. They said that some other riders we had met last night were camped in a Forest Service Campgound just past the ranger station. We found a spot off a little fishing access road a little before the campground. It was a nice spot to camp and it was 'free'!. I like free.
