Hitch 6 South Zone Trails This hitch we completed one turnpike and began another in the southern half of the Salmon-Challis National Forest near Stanley, ID. While out in the woods we experimented with spear-making, sleeping in tarps instead of SCA provided tents, and creating fire with bow drills. One of our Forest Service contacts stayed out with us one night and cooked us a pie of gram crackers, grits, apples, cinnamon, and marsh mellows. Needless to say it was delightful. Logs were felled, rocks were gathered, and fish habitat was protected. All and all it was a decent hitch. We got to see Salmon spawning in the river, they must have been three feet long.
