Aug 28, 2017 - Vale to Idaho Falls

Traveled from Vale to Idaho Falls. Fuel at Loves in Ontario was $2.99 Then followed the interstate to Mountain Home where we exited onto Hwy 20 which we followed all the way to Idaho Falls. This was a nice drive over Sawtooth Mountains and then through the Craters of the Moon. A lava flow that is about 100 miles wide in places. This must have presented a real challenge to the pioneers. The city of Arco was the first town in the US to have Nuclear Power. From Arco to Idaho Falls was miles and miles of land that was a Nuclear...

Aug 9, 2017 - Idaho Falls ID

On the journey along US 20 we passed a roadside marker saying something about elephant hunters. What! Elephant hunters in Idaho? See the picture for the explanation. The Elks Lodge here has 4 camping spaces and 2 were available. And the price is right - a $10 donation. They have electric and water. However the road the lodge is on is under construction so it made finding the place a little more challenging. There is a six-hole short course at the Sand Creek Golf Club. Those six holes were very unkind to us. Dinner tonight at the Snake Bite...

The Summer of 2017

Jul 20, 2017 - Jackson, Wyoming

We stayed in Idaho Falls for two nights, mainly so we would have a day to go to the town of Jackson, Wyoming, up in Jackson Hole. We’d been there on motorcycles about 10 years ago, but had come in from the north through Yellowstone, then went back the same way, out the east side to Cody. This time we were coming from the South, up the valley from Idaho and the town is a fun place, so we wanted to go back. The ride up today was beautiful, with a stop at the earthen dam that creates Palisades Reservoir. It’ is a really, really long lake...

Jul 20, 2017 - Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson

I separated this part out because there were too many pictures for Jackson and, well: The main thing we wanted to go see again was the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, with coins embedded in the bar top and saddles for barstools. We had some drinks and lunch and there are a lot of other cowboy things to see in there too (see pictures), so that place alone makes it worth the trip. It's the thing we most remembered about Jackson, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Jul 19, 2017 - Idaho Falls

There isn't much to report about the trip from Helena to Idaho Falls, pretty boring, except I had to fight the wind a lot with the motorhome. Whenever we have wide open spaces that's a problem. We were lucky to get a space at the campground there because the Blue Angels were performing in Idaho Falls that weekend so everybody came from miles around. We probably could have stayed and gotten tickets to the air show, but we've seen them many times having lived in Annapolis and we have our own air show in Punta Gorda. Since there are no...

Jun 1, 2017 - Grand Tetons, Jackson Hole, & Teton Village, WY to Idaho Falls, Idaho

It was mostly a travel day, today with a couple of stops. We left at 6:30 am. It was raining and about 45 degrees when we woke up. The nice thing about dry camping, is that Jim did not have to break things down, but just shut off the gas and throw away the garbage. It was very windy at the campground, but there was no wind soon after, and a little bit later on. It is windy here at the campground, and probably will rain soon, but it is 86 degrees. Along the way, I noticed beautiful purple lupines growing along the side of the road. A bike...

Aug 11, 2016 - Idaho Falls

This picture was taken yesterday. On the drive back to see the Oregon trail, the road kept getting narrower and narrower until it resembled a goat path. I thought it might get tight down that road and it did. ha. This is some of the scenery that we saw today, there were miles and miles of hay fields and wheat fields. They were harvesting the wheat and baling hay and straw too. All that made Karen hungry and Mexican is what she picked but nothing measures up to Ramon's back home so she was disappointed. The lemonade I had was just right!...

Jul 24, 2016 - Happy Birthday, Tom!

We ran some errands yesterday and I did a load of laundry at the campground laundromat. Aside from that, we just stayed home and relaxed. Today is Tom’s birthday. I made him breakfast and then we headed south to Pocatello. Tom wanted to spend his birthday visiting a museum and a replica of a fur-trading post there. We were going to go to the Museum of Idaho, here in Idaho Falls, but it is closed on Sundays. Instead, we visited the Bannock County Historical Museum in Ross Park in Pocatello. The museum has lots of antique tools on display....

Our 2016 Travels

Jul 22, 2016 - Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming

We drove up to Grand Teton National Park today. It took two and a half hours to get there via US-26, which is the route I will take with the motorhome. It was a scenic ride through ranch land in the Snake River Valley. We passed Palisades Reservoir and drove up through the hills through Targhee and Bridger-Teton National Forests to Hoback Junction. The Cliff Creek wildfire is burning southeast of there and we could see smoke off in the distance. We continued on through Jackson, Wyoming, to the Park. We went to the visitor center in Moose...

Our 2016 Travels

Jul 21, 2016 - Snake River RV Park & Campground in Idaho Falls, Idaho

Today was a short travel day, just 115 miles. We took our time getting going this morning and didn’t get on the road until after ten. We traveled through more agricultural areas in the Snake River Valley along I-84 and I-86. I saw fields of wheat, corn, potatoes, hay and other crops. There is a large dairy farm and a wind farm along the route. We passed through a couple towns, but it is mostly farm country. We headed north on I-15 and stopped for lunch at a rest area in Blackfoot. The rest area is in the middle of an ancient lava flow....

Our 2016 Travels

May 9, 2016 - Idaho Falls, Idaho #2

Took a trip over to Craters of the Moon National Monument near Arco, Idaho. We drove around mostly looking at bleak landscape. Along a 52 mile fissure called the Great Rift, over several million years many eruptions have taken place, the last being about 2000 years ago which produced North Crater. We travelled a 7 mile loop stopping at the various points of interest. The surface temperature during the summer can reach 150 degrees, however there has also been a hard freeze in all 12 months of the year. It is an area of extreme...
