First picture, Lochsa Wild and Scenic River. The second picture is a stream that flows into the Lochsa. There were raging steams like this every half mile or so along the river.
Wilderness Gateway Campground is a major base for people rafting and kayaking the Lochsa River. The river was running so full and rough, from all the rain and snow melt, cannot understand why anyone would want to do this. Must be a testosterone thing. The campground was full of red-eyed vireo’s. I identified them from their voice, but never saw one because of the dense forrest foliage.
Completed the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway, following the Lochsa Wild and Scenic River to Lolo Pass. At Lolo Pass Visitor Center, there was still snow on the ground. They said it was the latest there has been snow. Leaving the pass, headed into Montana.
