Down the Highway

The drive between our campground and Moscow was just as amazing as the first part of Highway 12.

There are some cool small towns.

You go through part of the Nez Perce reservation. I'm looking forward to going back and exploring around there more. Emily's aunt and cousins are Nez Perce and live near Lewiston.

One of the major towns is Kooskia. In Idaho they don't pronounce the "A" at the end of the word – so Kooskia is pronounced "Koosky." They have other weird pronunciations too – like Kamiah is pronounced "Cami-eye."

Highway 12 is the way Lewis and Clark went, and there's tons of stuff named after them (such as Lewiston, Clarkston, and Clarkia – which is pronounced "Clarky.")

We stopped in at JB's Horseshoe Bar & Grill in Troy, Idaho, before going on to Emily's parents' house in Moscow. JB's is for sale – if you have an extra $150,000 and want to run a bar in Idaho, your dream awaits.
