From 91 Days in Idaho
Famous for its potatoes and little else, beautiful Idaho in the Pacific Northwest is easily one of the USA’s most under-appreciated states. Amazingly varied, from the fields of the south to the mountain ranges of the north, with some America’s most bizarre and remote nature. Lava fields? The continent’s largest sand dune?!

After finishing the White Pine Scenic Byway, we toured both the church and its museum in the nearby visitor’s center….
