Like every state, once you get inside it's borders you see things you had not thought of, or hear of an interesting spot to see. Remember Evil Knievel? Our sons were interested in Motorcycles in their youth so of course Evil was followed intensely. Well one of the facts I had forgotten was his failed jump over the Snake River Canyon.
So with this new discovery, it was off to find the spot of the jump. There were many beautiful spots and water falls on the Snake. We began to really enjoy the search. WE found it near these falls. The property is private where the jump took place so we did not get to the exact spot, but could see the area.
We did find the Caters of the moon, but it was rainy and Sherry did not venture out much. I did enjoy what I saw, But I learned there were a lot of cinders from intense heat that once covered the area.
Leaving there and driving thru the country we learned something I did not realize. The worlds first nuclear reactor for a power plant was developed in Idaho.
The seeing some Barns that seemed to be set into the ground I questioned on the internet that night and a local came on and explained these were spud houses. SHUCKS of course the Idaho Potato.
WE were off to the Potato museum...
We also saw this beautiful LDS Temple in one of the towns, the setting was beautiful.
Oh I would be amiss if I didn't say, WE stopped at a 'STINKER STORE' evidently a chain of convenience stores. I did smile at the name.
That is not all of Idaho of course, but for some reason I got it on my mind tonight..
