Idaho Falls

Our campsites are getting better already! This is our very spacious and very green spot at the Snake River RV Park in Idaho Falls. It's our home for the night after a long day of getting here.

We were up early and on the road by 7:00. Today's route included a 100-mile stretch on US-93. Between road construction, wind and rain, we covered that ground at about the same speed as yesterday's average. (At least it wasn't curvy!) The three interstates we took across southern Idaho let us finally travel at freeway speeds, but kept us in steady rain the entire way. The silver lining of the day was that the increasing winds were on our tail! Immediately upon our arrival in Idaho Falls, the winds were really gusting and a band of thundershowers blew through the area. What a way to top off the day!

One of the advantages of traveling north this time of year is enjoying an extended Spring, thundershowers and all. These wonderfully scented lilacs are part of a hedge just across the street from our site here. Beautiful!

We are happy to be off the road, with 324 miles under our collective belts for the day. (Our "typical" travel day mileage is somewhere around 200 miles!) Thankfully, we have a short day ahead of us tomorrow.

OHhh I like that idea.. constantly following Spring as you head north. Never letting the summer heat catch up with you.

I would imagine then going south ahead of the Winter, following lovely autumn weather all the way till you hit snowbird territory. That is The Life!
