There's nothing like trading honking horns and car alarms for the sound of babbling brooks and hooting owls. We think these places provide some of the best quiet moments in the country:
In the national forest, Bear Valley Hot Springs is an amazing quiet escape. It's in the heart of the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness.
To master fly fishing, you must learn to wade quietly through trophy waters like the Southwestern Crown's Blackfoot River, made famous by the film "A River Runs Through It".
In Idaho's Payette National Forest, try a quiet moment on the Salmon River, two emerald ribbons that wind through remote forests and canyons.
