ROAD TRIP: By National Geographic
“Drives of a lifetime
Discover what Ernest Hemingway came to love in Idaho’s spectacular Sawtooth wilderness.
National Geographic has included the Stanley area as one of the “Most Spectacular Trips In The World”
This outstanding scenic drive through south-central Idaho climbs more than 5,000 vertical feet (1,524 vertical meters) from a desert canyon near Boise into the rugged, spectacular mountain terrain of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. In the Sawtooths you can hike, fish, paddle white water on the Salmon River, check out a ghost town, and watch for elk, bighorn sheep, and mountain goats. Not surprisingly, this striking mountain landscape was a favorite playground of Ernest Hemingway, who is buried in the area.
