3 PLACES TO VISIT IN IDAHO FOR EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES
Sacajawea Interpretative, Cultural and Educational Center
Sacajawea became part of the expedition when her French-Canadian trader husband was hired to be an interpreter for Lewis and Clark.
Sacajawea was integral to the success of their Corps of Discovery Expedition due to her interpretation assistance and knowledge of the tribal lands they were traveling through, in particular, the Agai’dika (Salmon Eater) Shoshone-Bannock, Sacajawea’s own tribe whose homeland was in the vicinity of present-day Salmon, Idaho.
Land of Yankee Fork State Park, Challi
The Land of Yankee Fork State Park is in Challis, Central Idaho, along the Salmon River Scenic Byway (one of our favorite US road trip experiences).
A trail was used during the old mining days that took supplies from Challis to the Yankee Fork Mining District, and you can follow this historic trail along a 98-mile loop drive.
Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve
Life should be filled with wow moments. Driving into the Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve was one of those.
This volcanic wonderland offers 750,000 acres of twisted lava fields, craters, cinder cones and surrounding mountain ranges. It’s in the high desert of Central Idaho, about 175 miles from Boise. It’s an incredible place to visit on your Idaho road trip.
