Read many forums, had several reactions, but there is some contradiction and I am still puzzled.
So try the Idaho experts, if I may.
When staying around Orofino and travelling the scenic 12, mapquest allows about 6 and a half hours.
From the forums it sounds it will take much longer.
I am talking about travelling in August.
So what is the best thing to do.
Not go to Orofino from Walla Walla, but straight up to Spokane and miss the scenic road.
Or go from Walla Walla to Orofino stay the night and go over Lolo pass to Gardiner or West Yellowstone( does that make a big difference?
It is summer and the days are long and if I have guaranteed accommodation, how long does it take?
I did book Yellowstone already.
