Thanks for the ping.
I've criss-crossed that affected area just about every way imaginable, from the southern route, OR-140 Medford-Winnemucca-Wyoming; to the northern Portland-Columbia Gorge-Boise-Great Falls-Jackson run.
My favorite, being that the trips are Medford, OR to the SD Black Hills, is Medford-Klamath Falls via 140, then 97 north & cut across the Klamath Marsh to Silver Lake & Christmas Valley, and over to Burns. From there, south to Jordan Valley & into Idaho, use the west/south side highway to the Bruneau Dunes area before picking up I-84 east of Mountain Home over to Ogden, then up Ogden Canyon into Wyoming, then across on state roads.
Advice: Take along copies of Roadside Geology for each of the states, and make a vacation of the trip itself. Maybe a good guide book to the Oregon Trail, too.
There are some places that are marked concerning the floods from Lake Bonnieville, but I don't remember seeing any for the Lake Missoula Floods.
There is a GOOD interpretive site at the rest stop (first one south of the Idaho/Utah border--not the one at the border!) on I-84 between Snowville and Tremonton, UT concerning Lake Bonnieville & it's floods. Many of the old shoreline shelves, at least four as the lake levels changed, are easily visible all along the surrounding hills in the entire basin.
Thanks, I'll heed your advice if ever I travel there. :')
