The Cramer Fire Firefighters Memorial is a must visit while you’re exploring and adventuring the Salmon-Challis Forest and the Salmon River in Idaho. This humble Fallen Firefighters memorial honors two helitack and heli-rappeller wildland firefighters, Jeff Allen and Shane Heath. Both firefighters lost their lives in the Cramer Fire in 2003.
Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is such a unique park that you just have to visit! But who would ever think of such a place would be in Idaho? And why on earth would a place like this be even considered a National Park? With its’ amazing geological moon-like features, the lava field environment is literally out of this world! The volcanic ground zero literally looks like you’re on the moon! Hence, why it’s called Craters of the Moon.
Anytime we pass through small towns across the United States, we do a little Google search so we can see what they’re all about. When we passed Arco, Idaho also known as Atomic City, we were amazed by Arco’s significance. And, though there’s a whole lot of nothing out there, it surely made us raise our eyebrows. Let’s just say that they do a whole lot of ‘testing’ there!!
