Route of the Hiawatha

My friend Steve and I left home around noon on a Friday and headed just the border of Idaho and Montana to ride the Route of the Hiawatha rail trail. He hadn't done it before and I had only once about 10 or 12 years ago with my youngest daughter Mallory. This time many more people were using the popular trail that features a 1.66 mile long tunnel, several tall trestles and about 5 shorter tunnels. We made it to the bottom and were the last ones on the second-to-last bus. The driver was informative and very friendly. No flat tires, enough light to see in the tunnels and loads of fun.
