Vintage Lowman Inn

Lowman Inn, c. 1949

Lowman Inn, c. 1949

This would have been on Highway 21, an “in-holding” in the Boise National Forest. The road to the south is known locally as “avalanche alley” and it is often closed in the winter. To the east, the road goes over Banner Summit (7056 feet) and then down into Stanley.

A forest fire a few years ago destroyed the Sourdough Inn, which probably set on this site. It has since been re-built.

What makes this particular postcard extra fun in the pickup in front. It looks like the 1947 Dodge pickup that my father used to own and in which my siblings and me learned to drive.
