The second weekend of July most of my kids and their families make the trek up the Clearwater River in Idaho, to the Lochsa, ending at Wilderness Gateway Campground. Another 50 miles up the Lolo Pass will get you to Montana.

We went on walks and hikes, visited the nearby beach for a cool down in the river, rode DH's trikkes around the loop, watched Daniel climb to the top of a nearby tall pine, watched Melanie paint, read books, tended the campfire, and just plain ol' hung out together. So much fun.
We really need to do more of these trips, but next one will probably be closer to home - maybe Mt. Rainier.
