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...

Alaska Trip 2016

May 7, 2016 - Idaho Falls, Idaho

We arrived at Snake River RV Park, Idaho Falls, Idaho on Monday May 2nd. It is the spectacular falls on the Snake River that gives this town its current name . The falls drop only 20 feet but are 1200 feet wide. Along the Snake River is the Greenbelt Loop which goes 5 miles on either side of the river, and can be used for hiking, bicycling, picnicking, or just relaxing, and is also close to the downtown area. Joe did several hikes on this trail, and Val enjoyed watching the ducks and geese as well as the view. Idaho Falls has a sister...

Alaska Trip 2016

Sep 7, 2015 - September 6, 2015 - Twenty Second Stop - Idaho Falls, ID

Our route today was I 84, I 86, and I 15. Passed some mountain ranges on our right hand side. Boy, am I happy about diesel prices. I have not paid more than the $2.60s for quite some time. The roads have been pretty good so I can drive at 60mph most of the time. If Kay was not sitting in the back seat, we could be getting some pictures of the countryside we go through like we did on past trips. We have been able to set up the satellite dome at every Park including setting it up on the roof twice to get over the trees. Kay can watch her soap...

Aug 5, 2015 - Rocks, rocks and more rocks

We spent the night of the 3rd in North Platte, NE after driving I-80 doing 80+ with tractor trailers passing on both sides. I think I'm getting to old for that so when we left North Platte the next morning I drove the Lincoln Highway (old 30) at 65 miles per hour. At Gering, WY we visited the rocks that were used by early pioneers and travelers headed west and then headed toward the Tetons. When we got to Riverton, WY there was not a room to be had. At 9 O'Clock that night we found the last spot in a Campground at Lander, WY and spend the...

Jul 17, 2015 - Day Two - Talking Leaves

A favorite reference from the Bird Woman audio book today was Sacagawea calling Clark's journal entries "talking leaves." I wonder what she would call my electronic blog entries? The Corps had an amazing end to their great adventure. William Clark even took Sacagawea's young son, Pomp, into his own home to educate him later on. But I was saddened to learn that Merriweather Lewis, after his acclaimed success, ended up an alcoholic who took his own life, an tragic irony in light of another quote of the day - "You don't know your own strength...

Sacagawea and Me

Jun 20, 2015 - Day 27 June 19 2015 Hoback WY to Idaho Falls ID

Day 27 June 19 2015 Hoback WY to Idaho Falls ID We woke up to a chilly 45 degrees and sunny with a slight breeze which wouldn’t be anything like we would encounter heading into Idaho. Our route today would take us through Jackson, into The Teton Nat’l Forrest first than into Yellowstone Nat’l Park., before entering Montana and Idaho. The morning was filled with anticipation of seeing herds of elk and bison. Bothe Leona and me has been to the Tetons and Yellowstone before, but it’s just like going to the Grand Canyon for the first time,...

Born Free

May 16, 2015 - Craters of the Moon

We love Boise, and Kristine, and it was difficult to say goodbye to both. We had such nice weather while we were there, it was disappointing to leave in rain. And boy, did it rain. As we drove the 300 miles to Idaho Falls, we drove in and out of dark storm clouds and lots of rain. We cringed each time a big truck passed us because we knew the motorhome was getting very dirty. We arrived at the Elks Lodge in Idaho Falls in time for happy hour. They had plug-ins in their parking lot for about 6 rigs but there were only 2 of us for the...
