Idaho Road Trip - Tuesday 3-12

Around 9:00 a.m., we said our sad farewells to Moscow, bringing along three wedding bouquets to hang-dry in the car.

Then we drove long and hard through very mountainous country for a long while, following various rivers cutting through them. Beautiful scenery. Kinda desolate and rugged, and full of grandeur.
Overlooking Lewiston, with it's stinky paper mill.

Clarkston is on the other side of the river.

We stopped along the drive to explore a roaring creek (also pronounced "woawing cweek") and to admire one of the many little waterfalls throughout the hills.

Of course I had to take a picture of a railroad trestle bridge.

One of the towns through which we passed appeared to have had a snow sculpturing contest.

One of the scenic overlooks had a rock which begged to be climbed.

 The view from it was gorgeous.

Then we came to long flat country with beautiful mountains surrounding us.

Since the scenery was rather unchanging at this point, I continued on my relentless pursuit of learning to knit and Hank the Cowdog provided more entertainment for all.

We had hoped to stop at a hotel with a pool, but it was closed for maintenance so we went to one with free breakfast instead. This has become a family joke as closed down pools have happened several times before. The one place we stopped with an open pool had a non-functioning hot tub. Oh, well, the Best Western in Burley, east of Boise, had wonderfully comfortable beds and we slept long.
