Thursday morning we left Bear Lake Utah at about 0900. We had a gorgeous drive along Highway 89 going from Utah into Idaho and then a little bit of Wyoming and back into Idaho. Two lane roads and cute little towns.
Amazing how many people are out camping! Lot's of families..must be home schooling!
Here's one for sale Wendy!
We stopped to get a few groceries in Afton, Wyoming. What a great place! Nice to feel "normal" again. It was around 1200 or so, all the high school kids were either in the parking lot or in the deli inside. No signs on the door warning of "You must wear a mask to enter" Honestly there weren't any of those signs in Idaho or Garden City either. There were some people with masks but most without. Makes me not want to go home to deal with our locked down state! A very friendly touristy town.
We resumed our drive not really knowing our end result. We saw there was a huge lake just outside of Alpine, WY. Right on the border of Idaho and WY. If it wasn't coming up to the weekend we probably would have headed for the Tetons and Yellowstone.
Palisade Reservoir looked to be on the low side but as you got closer to the dam it looked much better. We pulled over at the scenic overlook and had a late lunch before moving on.
Gotta love the old barns!
I know, I just can't help myself!! :)
A few miles later I saw a campground that turned out to be NFS. Huge sites and beautiful view of the mountains in their glorious Fall colors. There was a 4 mile drive to another campground and boat ramp so we took it just to check it out. Nope, not as nice and overgrown. Good for people who want the boat ramp though.
We went back down, found our campsite and paid the $6.00 for the night. $12.00 if you don't have the America the Beautiful Senior Pass. They have several sites with electricity for $11.00 a night with the pass. They were all full but that's ok. We love where we are.Electrical sites across from us..all pull throughs
Our view from our campsite!
Gotta love the trees! Wouldn't they be gorgeous at Christmas decked out in lights?!!!
We sat outside and enjoyed the evening until the winds sent us inside. A delicious dinner of left overs and just a nice night.
So we're at 0500 on Saturday morning. We're spending another night here so we're going to take a drive to someplace we haven't been. Mesa Falls. We're planning on breakfast out in Swan Valley and later we'll have lunch (tuna sandwiches) hopefully in the area of the falls.
Saw yesterday on FB our grandson Mason got his learners permit! Congrats Mason!
Time to get a move on and get those sandwiches made! Have a great Saturday!
