Coming down the road and passing some artifacts

Day 14: Bad Knees Forcing Us into Salmon, ID

Starting at 7:50 we were side hilling for a while, then we came up on a ridge with a road that we hiked on for the rest of the day. At about 9 miles from Lemhi Pass and the Sacajewhea Memmorial, We got rained and hailed on pretty violently. So Voyageur pitched his tent under some trees and we both crawled inside for about half an hour. We heard a couple of trees fall nearby which scared me, making me a little nervous if there was a tree prepared to fall right on top of us. So we got out of there just in time for the storm to end. As soon as I got up from the tent I felt a striking pain in my knees. Something wasn't right with both of my knees and every time I stepped I couldn't extend my legs out all the way. I thought that it was a problem I had previously and was occuring every time I got up from sitting or sleeping. When we got to Lemhi pass we started hiking down a long dirt road that led to Tendoy, ID. At that point my knees were feeling a little better but killed me when we were going up or down. I figured that it would slow us down and make the problem worse if we stayed on the trail. About five or six miles down the road and having no cars passing by in either direction. We came to a house on the side of the road with some pretty excited dogs and tons of exotic birds. The two owners of the house came out and greeted us. Their names were Ginger and her husband Pete. They were nice enough to take us all the way to Salmon, ID. They both had jobs there so they were used to the half hour drive. We stayed in the Bear Country Inn and left the next morning to Darby, MT.
