Salmon River Solar Home

This lovely home and property sits on gently sloping
land in a small subdivision that is nestled between some
towering rock pinnacles and a famous river. The canyon,
formed by the Salmon River, is reported to be the second
deepest gorge in North America. The subdivision is located
13.5 miles west of the community of North Fork, Idaho and
35 miles northwest of Salmon, Idaho in east central Idaho.
Highway US 93 and the Salmon River pass through
both of these communities.
