In the country east of Cascade, Idaho

Warm Lake was so named because of some hot springs underneath it. The Forestry Service describes the water as refreshing.  Refreshing is another way of saying "cold enough to make certain body parts change size."

We were headed up to a lake called Summit Lake. There was a campground there ( we saw several dozen FREE campgrounds). The road looked iffy so I asked a lady how far to the lake. She said she did not know but you had to walk and there was a TON of mosquitoes. Now I don't know how much a mosquito ways but um... let's see... lets assume 400 mosquitoes in a gram = 28 grams in an ounce = 16 ounces in a pound = 2,000 pounds in a ton = Nope, we are not walking up to that lake! This is a view of Warm Lake on the way up. 

When we came back down, we decided to find an old ghost town and got on a nice road running north. There were many people camped along the road to fish. The road was paved so we decided to go farther along a nice peaceful river. However, that road ran out and we turned up another river and the pavement ended.

The road ran up to a mountain pass. Wide enough for one vehicle in most places.

We came out in a nice resort town called McCall, Id.
