Purple and Pink on the Wolf Fangs

I recently enjoyed a 200 mile back-country, dirt road drive near my home of McCall, Idaho U.S.A. The trip is a loop drive, that works its way through the Salmon River Mountains, through two incredible inland salmon spawning drainage’s. Big Creek, and the South Fork Salmon, the latter being North America’s third deepest river gorge (#1 is the nearby Snake River and Hells Canyon, and #2 being the main Salmon River, which Big Creek also flows into to.) The drive also takes you through the rustic, and historic back-country Idaho hamlets of Yellow Pine, Edwardsburg, and Warren. Much of the section from Yellow Pine, to Elk summit (past Big creek) is right on the edge of the lower 48 states largest road less area, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.
