Kaniksu National Forest borders Canada, within Northeast Idaho. The location of the image below is nearby the entrance road for the forest, which is on the East side of the 95 Highway. The entrance road, Brush Lake Road, is a steep hill, beyond which is a large open area that many have used for camping. I camped off the ride of the road at the GPS Coordinates in the image below. Look around in the forest and find your own perfect spot! Check out the image's location on a map using the iOS Photo Investigator App:

The picturesque Alaska Highway stretches through Canada to Alaska. I was lucky to travel this beautiful path through Canadian forest, and psyched to finally reach Alaska after a week. Of course, the American border crossing guard did his best to make me consider abandoning my own country. Wouldn't it be great to hear "Welcome home to the USA", instead of being hassled with snide comments?
