From the White Sand campground on the Lochsa River we could access the 20 mile long Elk Summit road; one of those roads that starts off as an improved gravel road and gradually lowers the quality of the improvement as you go farther in. Fortunately we only had to go about 6 miles to reach the Savage Pass Trailhead.
As you can see, there is still significant snow in the high country. We put off coming into this part of Idaho and Oregon so that we would be able to do some hiking, but here at the end of spring we may still be way too early. We shall see.
We drove past several meadows on our way back out to the campground and Cheryl took some flora/fauna pictures.
