Interstate 84

Interstate 84 is a primary transit route that runs diagonally through the Western States. The Interstate branches off of I5 in Portland, Oregon then runs westward through Northern Oregon along the Columbia River.

The road climbs out of the valley at Broadman then braves a series of mountain passes through the Blue Mountains.

The road then dips south through Le Grande and heads towards Boise and the Snake River Plane. Perhaps the most spectacular scene along the route is the deep Snake River Canyon and Shoshone Falls in Twin Falls Idaho.

One can also find spectacular scenes in the Sawtooth, Salmon and Lost River Mountains Running to the north of the Interstate.

The road branches East of Burley, Idaho. The main flow of traffic continues along the Snake River plane upward to Pocatello. I84 proper drops southward toward Utah. Both branches join I15.

On the way into Utah, I84 crosses in the Great Basin. The Central Feature of the Great Basin is the Salt Lake. About 15,000 years ago this lake was much larger and actually spilled over into the Snake River basin.

I84 joins I15 just north of Tremonton. I84 splits from I15 just south of Ogden, Utah and takes a route up along the Weber River. I84 eventually joins I80 at Echo Junction.
