From Sandon, we drove the long, narrow, bumpety bump road to the trailhead for Idaho Peak. This road system is a result of silver mining and logging in the region. I did not find the elevation at the trailhead; the peak itself is 7480 feet and the trail to it is about a mile. Much of it is a gentle grade with a steep section to get you to the mountaintop. The wildflowers were prolific and quite beautiful. The BC Rockies stretch out in all directions. They are incredibly tall and steep and the valleys below all seem to have long deep lakes, reminiscent of coastal fjords.
