Summer in the US is made for road trips. If you’re looking for a classic route, check out Southwest Idaho—where Idaho borders Oregon and Nevada. This region has so much wilderness, so many protected areas, so many hot springs, so many outdoor adventure options, and so few people compared with other places.
Our friends Blaze and Monique spent a few days cruising around in an RV and barely scratched the surface. Some of their highlights were rafting the Payette, riding at the Ya-Hoo Corrals, and fine dining at The Narrows Steakhouse in McCall. But simply being there, stopping and camping in different places along the way, and enjoying the night sky and the morning coffee with the panorama of Rocky Mountain peaks truly made this trip special.
