    Craters of The Moon, Jackson Wyoming

    June 22, 2014 in the United States

    After the Super Start Breakfast at the Super 8 Boise we set off for a brief sprint down the I 84 to Mountain Home. We witnessed first hand what happens with Vehicles towing trailers at high speed with one over turning. These interstates generally see speeds of 80MPH so an accident is always moments away.
    We left the I 84 at Mountain Home, and a after a brief stint in the curves we hit monotonous straight highway. A stop was made at Picabo where we enjoyed conversation with the locals and checking out the shop dedicated to Trout fishing and hunting. This a farming region which is snowed in for a large part of the year but the farmers still manage to get several crops of alfalfa and barley off in a season, during the snow they cattle farm with stock feed stowed in the summer.
    Our main feature today was Craters of the Moon which is the USAs first national Monument, an enormous field of lava dating back 10 million years. The visitors centre and educational presentation was brilliant as was the walking and driving loop around the park.
    3 of the group left us at this point as they have a couple of days planned around the Idaho Falls and Yellowstone area so we continued on as 3 couples, Carl and Paola, Greg and Melissa and Noela and I.
    Heading into Idaho Falls a storm built to the North and looked very menacing, these parts get Tornados so we watched carefully, we missed the storm for now, but only for now.
    Subway for lunch in Idaho Falls, and as we prepared to leave again in came the storm, I did not put wet weather gear on feeling the worst had past. A quick stop at the falls from which Idaho falls takes its name, and we headed to Jackson Wyoming. Soon we were in the dry again and I eventually dried out, but the storm made a surreal sight as it closed in around the surrounding mountains.
    To get to Jackson we rode the West Teton which is really the gate way to the Tetons and Yellowstone National park. We hit the 7900 foot altitude mark on this run, and it looks like fresh snow fell on the highest points. As it was we were in the snowline as we crossed the top of the range before descending into Jackson. Another great day.
    Tomorrow Yellowstone.

    Sun Valley with the Barths

    July 29, 2017 in the United States

    Jenn and Brian showed us more of Sun Valley's resort today. We took the gondola and then the chair lift to the top of Bald Mt where the views were once again out of this world. Sun Valley has done a great job of preserving their history through photographs hanging throughout every building showing the resort has it has evolved over the years along with the well know people who have visited and continue to visit . We had a great lunch at the country club then that evening while Jenn and Brian worked the event, Wyatt joined us for a spectacular dinner buffet at the Village's main hotel followed by an Ice Show on their outdoor ice rink. The talent was overwhelming with the main performer being Nathan Chen who is our gold medal Olympian hopeful for this winter's 2018 Olympics. What a fun day!Read more

    The Barths (Hailey, Idaho)

    July 28, 2017 in the United States

    Today we arrived in Hailey, Idaho to visit our friends The Barths. The drive here was another pretty one through a mountain dessert type terrain. We had a great tour of Sun Valley by Brian. What a beautiful resort he works at. Can't wait for tomorrow to see more of this beautiful area.

    Crater Moon (Idaho)

    July 30, 2017 in the United States

    Though we could have stayed longer with the Barths to continue to participate in all that it offers, we decided we needed to continue on our journey. Upon Jenn's recommendation we stopped at Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Idaho. This was very different from anything we had experienced. It was the strangest landscape made up of black lava that erupted thousands of years ago. Lava tubes resulted and when they collapsed, tunnels were revealed. We did a guided tour of the Indian cave with a park ranger. Very cool. Next we traveled outside of Jackson, Wyoming where we'll spend the next few days.Read more

    Mountain Pass to Ketchum

    July 31, 2015 in the United States

    Risking our lives to get to Ketchum via forest service road. That's only a slight exaggeration. The road is narrow and drop is infinitely steep. :P Glad I didn't have to drive. Amazing we were just driving through the desert before coming up the mountains!
