We have a winner! Locally it's known as the "Kilgore" road,

Camas Meadows Battle Field, a major fight, where the Army got their butts kicked pretty good by the very smart Nes Perce.

For you Left Coasters: or anyone else for that matter, next time your headed to Yellowstone, take this route to get there. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Take I-15 to Dubois Idaho, then follow A2 (Kilgore Rd) to connect to US 20... one of the most scenic rides you'll ever take.

here is a pic of the memorial behind me:




and a link for some history
