Jun 14, 2018 - Wilderness Gateway and the Lochsa

A lack of Internet access is making it very difficult to keep up with these journals. I am depending on cell service for Internet but the last several places we’ve been has lacked cell data service. In fact, we’ve had no contact at all with outside world for several days. Claudia worries about this a little with her “What if...?”. And I get it! Anyway, we left the beautiful Selway traveling about 50 miles closer to Lolo Montana. We chose a national campground this time called Wilderness Gateway. It is a large campground with large spaces...

I’ve long wanted to spend some time on the Selway River after hearing how beautiful it is. Well, I’ve done so now and it is true that this place is beautiful.

Jul 21, 2011 - Apgar NFCG

We stopped at the Dayton Historical Train Museum and toured the museum and the train station master's home above the station. Then took the tour guide's advice and ate at Home Baked Goodness by owner/pastry chef Carolyn Suffield. The food is all fresh baked and not canned. I am emailing Carolyn my fresh cherry cobbler recipe. Lowell found this recipe and we have baked it three times and each time it has been perfect and delicious. We learned many years ago asparagus, peas, and green beans were grown primarily for the Jolly Green Giant...
