What Bert Has To Say About Lewiston Metro Area

Lewiston, in a deep canyon at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater rivers, has a distinctly Old West feel. Forest products mills and a few other industries are the economic mainstays, with Potlatch operating the largest of these mills, giving an unpleasant odor at times. Moscow, 20 miles northwest, home to the University of Idaho, is a pleasant small college town offering some entertainment and college amenities.
