While we were in Idaho Rick went out on his bike one day for a little ride which ended up being a long ride because he took a left instead of a right or vice versa! He came upon the Snake River Canyon in Twin Falls which he raved about for days (after he over came the shock of "stumbling" upon this large bridge HIGH above the canyon).
So off we went in the car one day so he could show Sir and I this magnificent bridge. Before we got to said bridge we went to Lake Milner and Milner Dam. Some pictures of the area above and below. We had the place to ourselves, much to Sir's delight, although he was not allowed in the overlook area, he was allowed in the lake area - thankfully, because he gets a bit put out if he sees a beautiful huge lake and can't put his feet in it or try to drink half of it!
The area was just gorgeous and beautifully maintained by Idaho Power (I believe). If you look closely at the photo directly above and the one below you will see small water falls. There is a tiny little stream in those two photos that had the clearest cleanest water I think I'd ever seen.
Eventually we made it to the Perrine Bridge and Snake River Canyon. This bridge is one of only a few where B.A.S.E. jumping is legal ~ I thought I was nuts when I jumped out of a plane, but this is just plain insane ~ oh yeah, to each his own!
It was truly magnificent there on a beautiful clear 75 degree day.
I must admit that because I waited so darn long after our trip to Twin Falls to do this post that I can't remember if the three photos above were taken from the "observation area" at the bridge or if they were taken from the observation area at Milner Dam! My bad! Wherever they were taken it was a beautiful area and a lovely day.
Then on the way back to the coach, more southern Idaho brown brown brown.
We left Rupert, ID last Thursday (the 23rd) and headed to Sunset UT to the repair facility there that Rick prefers if we are on this side of the country. The last time we were there was an absolute nightmare - this time was much easier, much more efficient, much more organized so our repairs and refrigerator recall were completed in a day - we got there Thursday afternoon and they started right away on our coach and finished up with our list of stuff by early afternoon on Friday. We stayed there over the weekend and left on Monday morning and came to Fillmore, UT.
Our plan was to be here in Fillmore a couple days then head to Moab to go to Arches National Park. Well we decided that since we're only about 300 - 350 miles from Vegas that we should take a detour and go stay at one of my favorite lodges just outside Vegas. With a long weekend coming up I just knew our niece, the teacher, would be able to come visit us for a long weekend - not so much, she had other plans, so with that we rethought our plan!
After hours of trying and stressing yesterday I was unable to find a campground in Moab that had sites long enough to accommodate us without having to unhitch the trailer (we need 70 feet) or a place to put the trailer if we had to unhitch, so I threw up my hands and said the hell with it we won't go to Moab. ARGH .... Rick studied the map and came up with a couple options so we finally settled on heading east on I70 and going to Colorado. That is one of the states we haven't been to, but we do have some concerns about 11,000 mountains ~ thankfully the interstates have great climbing lanes for those of us that will slow down to 35 mph as we go up up up! Tonight we will be about 160 miles away from here in Green River, UT then on to CO tomorrow or the next day. It'll be good to be "on the road again" to parts unknown.
