Dusk at Indian post office





There were two large stone cairns at the Indian post office location along the Lolo Trail. I think it unlikely that any of the Native Americans who traveled this route for hundreds if not thousands of years, left any rock cairns. They certainly didn't need them to find their way and as the name might sests, I don't think any of them were leaving written messages for each other.

The name of the beautiful place along the Lolo Trail came to it in the early 1900s. The site resides on a narrow isthmus of land with steep slopes dropping off dramatically and for great distances on either side. No doubt that those who passed along this "salmon grounds" to "bison country" route, traveled right along this path. To do anything else would have been way too much work and trouble.

So when you stand here and taken in the wide panoramic views, you can be assured that many a Native American (including Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce), and the entire Lewis and Clark party, crossing here on horses (and with little to eat), looked at a scene quite similar to what you can see today.

Even though the rock cairns (I saw two) are likely a late addition, they add a sense of human "this is a spectacular spot" message to a visit here.

This is one of many photos taken on a three day trip to the Lochsa River country of Idaho (7.30.10 through 8.1.19). What follows is the story behind this trip, if you are interested:

THE STORY:

July 30th through August 1st, 2010, I took a three day trip to the Lochsa River country in Northern Idaho. Crooked Fork Creek and Colt Killed Creek join to form the Lochsa River; The Lochsa River and Selway River join at Lowell, Idaho to form the Clearwater River; the Clearwater River joins the Snake River at Clarkston, Washington and Lewiston Idaho.The Snake River then flows west until it meets the Columbia River.

The Lochsa River drainage is red, scenic and rich in history.

I have traveled Lolo Pass (highway 12), which travels along the Lochsa River for over 30 years but rarely having had the time to slow down and explore the area, to hike it, drive “back road” routes and really enjoy all that it has to offer.

I saw a photo of a 1924 fire lookout on top of Grave Peak, Idaho on flickr several years ago and decided then that I wanted to hike there. Later I learned that the top of Grave Peak was where a young Norman Maclean (author of a River Runs Through It), served as a fire lookout as a 17 year old, back in 1919. He wrote a semi-auto biographical story about his adventures at nearby Elk Summit and his assignment as “fire lookout”on Grave Peak [USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook, and a Hole in the Sky",] I had read that story years ago.

A friend later loaned a book to me titled: The Lochsa Story by Bud Moore. In that book the story is told of “Isaac’s Gold” and a prospector named Jerry Johnson. Some hot springs in the area, which my wife and I hiked to this year, were named after that Jerry Johnson. Like the Lost Dutchman mine, the story goes that an Indian, named Isaac, knew where gold nets could be found among the Bitterroot Mountains. While leading Jerry Johnson and his partner to the gold, Isaac dies. Isaac’s gold source has never been found (of course), which keeps the legend alive. Grave Peak may have been named after the Indian Isaac, who died on it or near it.

Grave Peak resides south of the Lochsa River among the Bitterroot Mountains. To the north of the Lochsa River was the setting for another great story - - the Lolo Trail.

Lewis and Clark learned from the Shoshone Indians that the Salmon River canyon was too red to travel and that the Lochsa River canyon with its extremely steep canyon walls that pinched together at the river was not a good route west. So with the aide of a Shoshone guide “Toby”, the Lewis and Clark party traveled by horseback along the high spine ridge above the north side of the Lochsa River in 1805. They returned following most of the same route in 1806.

Lolo Trail as the route is now known was used for centuries by Native Americans, such as the Nez Perce, to travel back and forth to bison country both before and after the acquisition of horses. Lewis and Clark met the Nez Perce on the west end of the Lolo Trail and were given food by that tribe. That food included something new on their menu, the roasted camas root bulbs. Nutritious but of acquired taste, many of the Lewis and Clark party became ill from eating too much camas bulb.

Lewis and Clark suffered from lack of food along their nine day passage of the Lolo Trail route on their way west. They ate at least one or more of the colts that they had with them as they were unable to find and kill any big game in the area. They were able to kill a few grouse (they called them pheasant in their journals) and jays, but nothing large enough to sustain the group. Colt Killed Creek, one of two streams forming the Lochsa River was named by Lewis and Clark from one of the areas th

Swamp Lake as seen from my reconnaissance scramble to a high peak along Friday Ridge. We hiked all the way back to the missed trail junction then hiked back up the correct trail to the ridge above the lake (center of photo), just to be sure that IT was the right trail. It was.

Colt Killed Creek, one of two streams forming the Lochsa River was named by Lewis and Clark from one of the areas they resorted to killing one of their young horses, for meat.

NOTE: A young horse is called a “foal”. A female young horse is a “filly” and a male young horse is called a “colt”. Some folks incorrectly use the term “colt” to describe a young horse of either sex.

In the 1930s the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp), widened, improved, and in some places relocated the Lolo Trail route. It became known as the Lolo “motorway”. I decided to drive and camp along the eastern most portion of this route to “feel the history”. The Native Americans, had created and used this route (Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce used the Lolo Trail to flee the U.S. Army in what is still considered a masterful strategic endeavor. Chief Joseph and his band almost made it to Canada and safety, but were caught and defeated just a dozen miles or so, short of their objective). Lewis and Clark traveled it. It was a place I wanted to see and experience myself.

I chose to travel up Forest Road 107 (Saddle Cam
