The last leg of our sibling road trip yesterday started at Murray, Idaho. This is a historic mining town where gold was discovered in 1882. The Spragpole Inn and Museum is a "must visit" place in the Inland Empire. Known for great hamburgers, we made a good decision to stop there for lunch and a rest after our hikes.To end the day my sister wanted to travel the road Noah Kellogg took when he left Murray and headed to Kellogg (via Osburn) where he found an outcropping of galena at Milo Creek. We had a map and thought we knew which road to take, but were unable to locate the right turn that day. Instead we ended up traveling from Murray to Wallace over Dobson Pass. We will try to locate Noah Kellogg's route another day. Wallace, deemed the " The Center of the Universe" by the mining association, is the county seat of Shoshone County. The Silver Valley and my hometown of Kellogg were at the heart of early mining in northern Idaho. When I revisit the history of this area I always learn new information. It was a good decision to pick this spot in the Inland Empire for our road trip. As I said in my last post, we ended the day with great food at Wah Hing's Chinese restaurant in Kellogg. You can see posts by my siblings here and here.
This completes my three posts of the sibling road trip. They are also my Sunday Scribblings for the word decision this week. You can enjoy other Sunday Scribblings here.
