I think Park Creek Overlook is pretty much the best-looking spot for VHF that's right on Hwy 21 just north of Stanley. It's on a local high point where the valley is a little wider than other places. There are gobs of other turnouts and side roads along this stretch so there's lots of choices, and this one has a handy vault toilet and level parking.

Challis Golf Course and RV park is a ways up the eastern hillside of a wide valley on Hwy 93, giving you some viable horizon from East to South directions. It's not great but it's better than all the rest of Hwy 93. At least, it's convenient and you could have shore power if you rent a spot in the RV park.

The DN24-DN34 grid line is about an hour from Salmon, Idaho.

Read the whole story from Lance W7GJ at W7GJ solo Field Day 6m Grid DXpedition to the DN24xx/DN34ax line in Lemhi County, Idaho, June 23-27, 2016

The site was only about an hour from Salmon, Idaho and all but the last 8 miles was on paved roads. What's not obvious from Google Earth was that the old jeep trail up to the grid line is very steep, rocky and overgrown with sagebrush, as well as deliberately closed off by small downed trees, making it necessary to operate out of the car down on Salmon National Forest Road 413, at a spot close enough to reach the antenna with the feedline.

This is a convenient and extremely nice campground along Highway 21, about 15 minutes north and west of Stanley in the Sawtooth National Forest.

Although this spot is deep in a valley, it's a good base for finding accessible hilltops. For example, the next turnoff south of here onto Elk Creek Road (44.296056, -115.043013) needs scouting to see if there's a good spot.

Restrictions: Reservation recommended for this popular spot.
Fee area, base rate is $16/night.
Maximum 10-day stay.

Don't go. This looks good on the satellite view but it's a private road and gated off. At the top is some sort of fabulous building under construction, obviously not inviting to rovers.
