May 11- Idaho Falls, Idaho

Nice drive over as I experimented with my new GoPro. I won’t bore you with it yet until I can figure out how to edit the video and make it interesting. Trying to show you the “drive north”!

Arrived at Snake River RV Park about 2 PM. Nice park with gravel roads and level sites. Quiet park but near the city.IMG_3168

Took the dogs and went in town to explore. We immediately found the Greenbelt Riverwalk along the Snake River

and parked and walked and walked. It was over 3 miles around the block (both sides of the river and over two bridges).

Very nice with a lot of people out walking and skateboarding and bicycling and whatever.

The weather was 82. They are continuing to expand the river walk.

We did find the Idaho Brewery and enjoyed a nice cold one.IMG_1943

The LDS has the Idaho Falls Temple (dedicated in September of 1945) located in town and has numerous tours. We did not tour but it has created quite an economic impact as 34,000 people a year do visit it.

Friday doing miscellaneous work items around the Coach to get caught up. There is always something to do.

We did learn why they call this town Idaho Falls – falls created years ago to generate electricity.

This is quite a roundabout centerpiece.

Did our walk thru downtown, visited an Art Gallery and enjoyed some area wide artists. Great work but no buying as there is no place to hang.

There is 39 decorated benches downtown and along the river walk – we didn’t see them all.

Walked the River Walk again but in a different direction, saw the Japanese Gardens near the Falls. Great place to spend an afternoon.

Finally a stop at the Snow Eagle Brewery and Grill was enjoyable. There at Happy Hour and had a couple of appetizers and beers.DSC_0063

We didn’t have any potatoes while in Idaho but there is so much more to see in this state and I believe it will be a wonderful trip back sometime in the future.

Saturday is off to Helena, Montana.
