craters of the moon

Today we head towrds the craters of the moon national monument near arco, Idaho.

Reflecting on our trip so far: It was just the 1st of June that we headed west from far eastern Ohio; a beautiful trip across ohio and then into Indiana; a restful rally at moraine view, ill; a relaxing ride across the sculptured rolling plains of iowa and into nebraska...all of this in between nasty weather that has plagued the midwest during this period.

Entering wyoming at cheynne and a stop at the terry bison ranch then onwards to seminoe state park a beautiful drive 33 miles northeast of sinclair, wyoming...

then westward ho for a long haul to Beak Lake which is located in Utah and Idaho. Our destination was the east side of the lake at the idaho state park. This a beautiful and enchanting place just north of the spectacular drive south on US 89 into the Logan Canyon scenic byway and into the town of Logan , Utah.

This place, area...is renowned for its RASBERRY Shakes....which are delicious.....

Bear Lake is a treat and a must see for the scenic beauty of the area...my photo skills do not do it justice. picture on bottom is bear lake

Kingfisher...Bear Lake is one of my most favorite places on earth. I can't believe how blue the water is.
How far are you taking the Oregon Trail out? If you stop by Sivlerton Or...Honk. that's were we live. It's not to far from Oregon City. Here in Silverton there is the Falls. They are at least 10 falls in 25 miles of hiking trails. A couple of them you can walk behind.
Have fun and happy belated B-day to a fellow Gemini.

Since you are doing the Oregon Trail, I assume you will be stopping at the Interpretive Center just outside of Baker City, Oregon - and if so, you might want to take in the museum there at Baker (Wally's home town). They are preparing for the Oregon Unit's buddy rally there over the 4th.

Craters of the Moon NM is cool. The lava tubes are fun to explore. Enjoy them.

On the Oregon Trail

Bear Lake was just too beautiful, but alas we headed on the trail following it north to montpelier and soda springs, up to pocatella, blackfoot and upwards toward the craters of the moon.

It was a fun place and then as we headed west on US 26, I wondered how those wagons crossed that lava flow ground...

We were and are amazed at the irrigated farmland in alll of idaho we have seen so far.

we now rest on the banks of the snake river...glenns ferry at three island state park amist much history of the oregon trail....

Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing.

I always thought I went west in a covered wagon in a prior life.


Travel safe,


Maggie

Did you miss the Idaho Potato Museum?

You can buy a poster of Marilyn Monroe in a potato sack there.

Beautiful pictures!

We were heading back to Montana and Idaho this summer, but it's just not gonna happen. We were very taken by the beauty of that area, and want to spend 4-6 weeks just poking around and enjoying it all. Next year.

Travel safe, you four!


Maggie

As GetOutDoors said, don't miss the Baker City interpretive center. I believe it was up in the hills above Baker City where we saw the original Oregon Trail and deep ruts through the rock and signs of early campsites. An amazing side trip not to be missed. We are heading to Oregon in August for a September bike ride down the coast. Can't wait.

Unsurpassed beauty

We thought the McCall, Id area was beautiful.......but that was before we made the journey north continuing our trip. We headed north up Idaho 55 to meadows, Idaho and the intersection of us 95 and the scenic beauty increases exponentially. Beginning at meadows one picks up the little
salmon river which begins as a trickle as it heads north towards riggings where it is a full blown raging whitewater river.

Then continuing north on 95 one finds the road going up a very steep and long incline into white bird, Idaho....the white bird summit @4200ft .

From there we headed to grangeville and took Idaho 13 as a way to get to us 12 and orofino, Idaho. From there as one winds among the canyons and the Clearwater river as it winds it way into orofino, Idaho. Our destination was dworshak state park which is a magnificent 24 mile drive from orofino...and a 10 mile 10 percent downgrade with numerous switchbacks to get to the park on the edge of dworshak resivour.......just beautiful
