where the great outdoors is a four-season word...
Kerri, exit numbers are based on mile markers. North/south highways are marked from south to north and east/west highways are numbered west to east. If you know the exit number, you should know how close you are to the state border. For example: The Spokane St exit in Post Falls is exit 5, and it is five miles from the WA/ID border. As you go further east, the exit numbers (and mile markers grow). The Mullan exits are numbered 68 & 69 because Mullan is 68 miles away from the WA/ID border (and it's only a mile from one side of town to the other).The west to east count starts over at Lookout Pass, because it is counting from the ID/MT border instead of the WA/ID border. The exit for Lookout is exit 0 (mile 0) because it is 0 miles from the ID/MT border. The next official exit in Montana is five miles into the state - exit 5.
