This morning we got up after a good night's sleep ready to hit the road!
Our first stop was going to be the John Day Fossil Beds. What a fun place. Rather out of the way, but very beautiful. We learned alot!
Starting Mileage: 528.3
It opened at 10 am.
We were going to try to make it to the Hagerman Fossil Beds in Idaho, but due to slower traffic and a time zone change we did not make it. I think once they get the Minidoka Internment Center Park finished we will come back to see that. I want Lon to learn about that. It is not a nice part of our history, but it is something he should know.
We got gas in Ontario Idaho. They pumped it for me, even though it was Idaho.
Another day of no lunch, since it seemed like everyone went home for lunch. I did not see any place to stop and eat! We were looking too. We are going to find a place to replenish our snack horde, as we have been eating it for lunch!
Getting closer to Twin Falls. This was going to be our stop for the night.
However, we gave up the reservation I made to someone who needed it more. There is a forest fire north of Ketchum, Idaho. They are evacuating people, and those people need a place to stay. We thought it would be a good idea to give up our reservation and go on down the road.
We called ahead to the Hampton Inn at lovely Tremorton, Utah.
We got gas in Burley Idaho. Before there was vast spaces of nothing but scenery.
Gallons: 8.378 ( I wanted not to run out of gas on the way to Utah)
Lon took this picture out the back window. The sunset was amazing.
The motorcycles were keeping up with us, and we leap frog-ed the slow trucks. We would wave at each other. Sometimes, they went ahead of me, sometimes I was in front of them.
Nice picture. I think the pretty colors are because of the fire
It was good we called ahead and got our room. They ran out of rooms too. There were some other rooms in the town.
We used the pool and the hot tub tonight! Lon was thrilled that Mommy took him to the pool!
He is now asleep
Tomorrow we go see the Golden Spike!
