Long and Winding Road

So tomorrow I have to go to Weippe Idaho for
work. I've been there once before. It's very
pretty! But man oh man, the drive there is
a bit scary. You take Highway 11 as shown below:

(You may have to move the map a bit to see the
whole winding mess.)

Ok, so that looks a bit wavy. What it doesn't
show is how incredibly steep the whole thing
is. The elevation of Greer, Idaho where Hwy 11
starts is 1102. The elevation of Weippe is 3020.

My prep for my trip to Weippe reminded me that I have
yet to tell you about the secret Jacobite community on
the way there. I plan to take more photos tomorrow
and will tell you about the town of Fraser in
the next post.
