    Soda Fountain, Soda Springs ID

    June 21 in the United States

    Whilst today has been mainly just a driving day we ha e seen some different country. Driving some minor roads through Utah. Utah of course is mainly Mormon as it was the Mormons settled these and farmed these lands in the late 1800s.

    There is some amazing history of those times in the Oregon trail that passes through this region. The Tabernacle (photo below) is a monument to those times.

    We passed through Ephriam, Coalville, Evanston, Paris, Laketown Garden City. We also stopped in Montpelier to visit the bank now a museum that was robbed by Butch Cassidy and accomplices, before arriving in Soda Springs.

    Laketown and Garden City sit on the shores of Bear Lake, a huge expanse of water. There is a species of fish that habitats here that is only otherwise found in Washington. The theory is that the lakes are connected via subterranean caves, this is unproven as the lake is so deep it has not yet been proven.

    Soda Springs is so named by the geyser was discovered here that provided a source of commercial grade drinkable carbonated Soda Water.
    It was a large source of revenue for the town.

    Now the geyser is controlled with releases on the hour, it is very impressive. We took a cup and drank straight from the geyser after the release. It was perfect.

    We chatted with a local girl who educated us about a number of local facts and has suggested that next time we are here to contact her mother who would be more than happy to play host and tour guide.

    A cold beer and a shared meal at the local Pub and the day is complete. Another stunning day weatherwise.

    Heading to Jackson tomorrow where snow has been falling.

    Coeur d'Alene

    August 6 in the United States

    Nach Seattle liegen einige Tage Road Trip bis zum Yellowstone Nationalpark vor uns. Die erste Übernachtungsmöglichkeit auf dem Weg finden wir in einem National Forest. Es gibt quasi keine Infrastruktur, aber einen großen Stellplatz mitten in der Natur.

    Die anschließende Weiterfahrt verzögert sich durch einen unerwarteten, großen Stau. Da der Verkehr sonst sehr entspannt fließt, muss es schon einen triftigen Grund für die Verzögerung geben. Nach einiger Zeit entdecken wir ihn auch: Der Abschnitt rechts der Straße hat gebrannt und tut es zum Teil wohl immer noch. Mehrere Löschflugzeuge kreuzen die Straße direkt vor uns und auf dem Boden sind ebenfalls Feuerwehr und Polizei im Einsatz. Von dem Feuer selbst sehen wir nur noch sehr wenig, sonst dürften wir wohl auch nicht passieren. Die schwarze, qualmende Erde ist aber auch beeindruckend.

    Später als geplant erreichen wir den angesteuerten Campingplatz, der uns mit seiner Lage und Ausstattung direkt überzeugt noch einen Entspannungstag vor Ort anzuschließen. Also relaxen wir den nächsten Tag an unserem Platz an einem kleinen See, wobei nur die örtliche Wespenplage den Spaß zu den Mahlzeiten einschränkt. Dafür hat Keji einen Namenszug bekommen, mühsam zusammengestellt aus diversen Aufklebern.

    Frisch und erholt geht es weiter Richtung Yellowstone.

    Idaho Falls, ID

    May 28 in the United States

    It’s always good to get on our bikes and we’re amazed at how many comments and questions we get from people, it’s a bit like having a cute dog, people always stop to talk.
    The Riverwalk loop along the Snake River is also a great biking trail. Although the Falls are man made for hydro electricity, there are still picturesque especially with the river being so high. Canada geese and their young, ducks and grebes are just some of the birds we saw. Interesting animal statutes and benches on the route.Read more

    Tourist Park - Idaho Falls

    June 2 in the United States

    Parked on the banks of the Snake River which is in flood. We’re waiting on the 3rd controller for the step to be delivered, the first 2 were faulty and closed the step whenever the door closed. Fingers crossed 🤞 the third one will be good.
    Lots of interesting birds and we have Canada geese families in our back garden. Saw an osprey nest with 2 chicks on our bike ride along the river today.

    Dinner on the Deck

    June 3 in the United States

    Back at Dan and Janice’s house for dinner on their deck overlooking the city of Idaho Falls. Also joining the party were their friends John and Anne. Interesting people John originally from Mississippi met Anne originally from Dublin in Germany. Excellent food and company, shame we took photos after all the plates were cleared !! Great sunset over the city tonight.

    Old Oregon Trail - Massacre Rocks SP, ID

    June 6 in the United States

    Hiked from the rest area on I86 along a trail which went under the interstate to Trail Ruts of the pioneers who travelled across the US to Oregon and California. You needed an imagination to see the ruts, however the spring wild flowers were amazing as were the views over the Snake River.

    Beer Tasting

    May 27 in the United States

    Abandoned trip to Grand Teton NP as it was raining and chilly when we drove there last Tuesday, we couldn’t even see the mountains !! We also were going to be boondocking with no electric and when we started the diesel Aquahot heating it was spitting out black smoke.
    So we drove down in elevation and found a RV service place in Idaho Falls. Our step decided to stop working and they needed to order a part and of course it’s Memorial Day Monday so the part will not be here till Tuesday. Or Wednesday.
    So we find ourselves parked in Snake River RV Park drinking beer on a Sunday evening. Life throws spanners in the works, but it’s still good.

    Shirley House BBQ

    May 28 in the United States

    Funny how things work out, if we hadn’t had a couple of problems, we’d never have been in Idaho Falls this Memorial Day and we’d never have met the lovely Shirley family, who kindly invited us to their house for a BBQ.
    They live in the foothills to the east of the city with great views. Dan and Janice made us feel very welcome and we had a wonderful evening chatting with their family and friends. Great food and the odd drink or few. Stew and Dan also had a common interest..... Malt Whisky 🥃.Read more

    Memorial Day

    May 28 in the United States

    After the loop we ride our bikes to Freeman Park where there is a ‘Field of Honor’ and an event for Memorial Day. On our way in Stew asked a guy on his bike (Dan Shirley) if we were going the right way and another chance meeting leads to a memorable afternoon and evening.
    We walk through the flags representing local military personnel who lost their lives in war, it is very moving. Good to hear the pipes and drums of the Teton and District Pipe Band and see some Scottish dancing.
    Finished off the afternoon with a pint of Caber Toss a Scottish style ale at the Tap-n-Fill as recommended by the Shirley family (Dan, Janice, Elise, Josh & Austin) who we joined on the patio.

    Idaho's Natural Hot Springs

    October 2, 2015 in the United States

    Im Süden von Idaho gibt es Dutzende von heißen Quellen. Manche liegen direkt an der Straße, andere erfordern eine stundenlange Anfahrt auf holprigen Forstwegen oder eine kleine Wanderung. Dann ist man da aber ganz allein mit seinen privaten Pool in schöner Natur ...
