Ian McGaughey drives Idaho State Route 29

Ian McGaughey provided these comments about Idaho State Highway 29┬áduring the making the 2002 road trip documentary “Looking At America.” This still image is taken from the video.

“In western Montana, I got a bit off track despite an abundance of maps. There’s a silly bit in the video where I flip a coin to determine the way to go, and it led me across the border onto Idaho State Highway 29, a length of road over the continental divide in the Bitterroot Range. I had traveled thousands of miles of road by this point in the trip, but I remember sincerely feeling that this stretch of road was the most beautiful I had seen on the trip.”
