Posted by on Jul 28, 2013 in Idaho, USA | Comments Off on Camping in the Caribou

This weekend Edward and I went truck camping in the Caribou National Forest. Long Valley Road Long Valley Road #2 Quite the dust trail! Long Valley Road #3 We spotted a Bald Eagle along the way being harassed by crows. Long Valley Road #4 (Can you believe this is in our “back yard” in Idaho?) Luxury Car Camping: A FRIDGE! Making Breakfast in a town park A visit to the Chesterfield Ghost Town… Open plains on the way home Scattered Aspen Groves Gathering firewood (and no small amount of dust) on the way back home Stop…and shoot? Blackfoot Resevoir. The sign said poison lake…but it was teeming with birds and wildlife. Blackfoot Resevoir 1 Blackfoot Resevoir 2 Beauty shot of the Toyota Tacoma Please follow and like...

Lava Hot Springs

Posted by on Dec 3, 2012 in Adventure Travel, Empowered Women's Tour, Idaho, USA | Comments Off on Lava Hot Springs

Several summers ago Edward introduced me to soaking in Hot Springs. It was on our summer-long motorcycle adventure and boy, was I relieved to get the grime off as we’d been traveling on the small bikes and camping the entire summer.  We’re not those crazy-nudist-pot-smoking-hotpot-soakers (and we’ve met some)–we’re just “normal” folks that like par boiling ourselves in mineral water. One of our favorite places to soak is Lava Hot Springs.   It’s about 90 miles south of  Idaho Falls, and it is pure heaven. It’s clean, the facility is well kept, and they offer a variety of pools with a variety of temperatures.  We went there yesterday and I have to tell you, this morning and a city-water shower later, I am still feeling the soothing effects of the mineral water on my skin and on my psyche....

Hot Springing Weekend Ride

Posted by on Jun 27, 2012 in Idaho, USA | 1 comment

Edward introduced me to Hot Springs, and I have to say I am sooooooooo glad. We didn’t have that many back East, but here in the West there are lots. We rode out to Stanley, Idaho last weekend, soaked in a really cool hot pot (roadside) along the Salmon River, and then took the scenic (non-paved) road home. Here are some pics from the ride: Please follow and like...

How nice is Idaho?

Posted by on Jun 25, 2012 in Idaho, USA | Comments Off on How nice is Idaho?

Idaho is an amazing place to be in the summertime…it seems that the sunshine is endless.I’ve been back two weeks and haven’t yet seen rain. It’s a dry climate (when we moved into this house I didn’t even buy a clothes dryer! ) Riding is superb, and it would seem almost endless. Between Google Earth, the GPS, and the DeLorme Idaho Guides, you can chart a course almost anywhere via the road less traveled. Oh and the hot springs? There are lots. Check out this one we camped next to last weekend:   Please follow and like...
