Kellogg Gondola ride. In 1997,
I went through Kellogg and rode the

Wallace prided itself as being the town with the last stop light along I-90 between Seattle and Boston.
Finally, the freeway was finished there. Elevated onto a somewhat artistic overpass.
Trail goes underneath.
They had to be creative as the valley is quite narrow.
Wallace has a lot of historic buildings from its mining heydays. I-90 basically goes above that compact little town.
Looking west along bike path in Kellogg.
Under I-90 in Wallace is used for many things. Parking, the trail, there was a flee market, while I was in there. Elevated freeway made the town quieter.
Recently, here in Bellingham, I heard someone give a lecture about city planning in Vancouver, BC. He proudly proclaimed Vancouver as the "first stoplight" along I-5 (called 99 in Canada). Vancouver has not allowed freeways to take over.
