Seeley Lake

Seeley Lake

“Loafer” cabin at The Lodges on Seeley Lake is a special place! The screened in porch of our cabin, situated on the western shore of Seeley Lake, has a view of the Swan Range. Earlier we enjoyed the water and I explored the shore line in a kayak. Life doesn’t get much better than this! Yesterday we left Boise and enjoyed the curvy Ponderosa Pine Scenic Byway, Idaho 21. We traveled over several summits following different rushing streams and through green coniferous forests. Our only stop was at the Emile Grandjean vista. The highest point was probably Banner Summit at an elevation of 7,056 feet. We glimpsed from a distance the distinctive Sawtooth Mountains near Stanley. We spent last night in Challis where a few motels vie with one another for tourists. We started today on the scenic Salmon River Scenic Byway with a stop at the Lost Trail Pass, elevation 6,995 feet. Lewis and Clark are likely to have traveled through this area in 1805 and on their return in 1806. We drove through Missoula only stopping for gas before we caught highway 200 heading east and then headed north on U.S. 83. Seely Lake has a vibrant logging industry as well as a great location for tourism. Okay, I’m back to “loafing.”
