Trail Goes Through Heart Of Burn Area

Want a fun way to teach the kids about history, without them even knowing that they're learning something? Take them for a ride on the Route of the Hiawatha trail and stop to read the signs.

The signs commemorate the 1910 Fires in Idaho and Montana, and make the ride not only beautiful and fun, but interesting too. Here's an article from the Spokesman-Review about the trail and its' connection to the fires.
