This pass is in the town of Newport, WA, which is located on the Washington-Idaho border on the banks of the Pend d'Oreille River (Pend Oreille in the US, actually). The town is so much on the state border that the SE part of the city, Oldtown, is located in Idaho, while the rest of the downtown is in Washington. The Little Spokane River begins in swampland just SW of downtown.
