Boise, Idaho

We left Idaho Falls a couple of weeks ago. We are on our way to another national park (which will be revealed in the next several days). However, I needed to fly back to St. Louis for a week to check on and visit with my parents.

Boise was the only city “on our way” (sort of 😬) into which Southwest Airlines flew. We charge everything on a Southwest VISA card, and we get one Rapid Reward point for every dollar we charge. That really helps when we are gone long enough that I need to fly back.

I didn’t get to see much of Boise and the surrounding area because I was only there a few days, then flew to STL for a week, and then flew back to Boise. I only had a few days back in Idaho, and now it’s time to head to a new location.

We stayed about 40 minutes west of Boise at an RV park called Country Corners RV Park and Campground whose address is actually Caldwell, ID. This park is pretty much in the middle of “no where” but it is nice. It’s not a “destination” campground, but they sure are busy, the people are really nice, and they are nearly full every night. Plus, they have the most gorgeous flowers here this summer that I’ve seen in a long time.

Since we don’t like to drive much more than 3-4 hours a day, it will take us three driving days to reach our next destination.

So, for now ….. “On the Road Again!” (LITERALLY!) 😁

Idaho Falls, Idaho

We have stayed at a very busy but very nice RV park on the northwest side of Idaho Falls for the last two weeks. During that time we made our trip over to Jackson, WY, and visited Grand Teton National Park (see previous post). The rest of the time we have relaxed, taken care of daily chores around the RV, and, of course, paid all our bills online (yes, you do still have chores, bills, etc. when you are a full-time RVers).

If you are ever near Idaho Falls, it is worth the time to stop for a couple of days and see this town. Downtown you will find a series of falls. While not very high or forceful, they are absolutely gorgeous and so relaxing to sit and listen to.

While exploring the falls, be sure to walk both upstream and downstream from the Broadway bridge. Downstream you will want to take the footbridge across to the island. The community has taken this island and turned it into a lovely Japanese Garden.

There is a small park upstream with benches so you can sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the falls. There are also several picnic tables and places where you can just spread out a blanket in the shade and relax. There is also this amazing sculpture. Now THAT is a big moose!

We packed up this morning and are heading out of Idaho Falls. Next destination: somewhere a little further west. Can you guess where?

So, for now ….. “On the Road Again!”
