SNOWBIRD TRIP 2018
Part 6: Going Home
Saturday, April 7 – Sunday, April 8

SATURDAY, APRIL 7

We took two days to drive home, from Utah to Washington. Todd started acting silly after so many hours in the car. This was right before our lunch stop in Twin Falls, Idaho (at the Chipotle Mexican Grill).

After lunch, we did some sightseeing at Shoshone Falls (see the last post: “Shoshone Falls (Twin Falls, ID)”. Back on the road, we saw a really long load: a wind turbine blade. Todd took a nap.

Next stop: Boise, ID.

We had the good fortune of being able to visit my aunt (my mom’s sister) and uncle, and stay overnight at their house. Highlights shortly after arriving were: hanging out in the backyard with cocktails, watching the ducks in the above-ground pool and eating a delicious vegan meal.

Todd had a blast doing pillow bear and ‘pillow frog’ fights with Elaine and Jeff.

Shoshone Falls – April 7, 2018

SHOSHONE FALLS
Twin Falls, Idaho

SATURDAY, APRIL 7

While driving from Snowbird, Utah to Boise, Idaho, we stopped in Twin Falls, Idaho, for some lunch. During a search for restaurant options, I stumbled upon the official website for the city of Twin Falls, Idaho. The website showed spectacular pictures of Shoshone Falls, “the Niagara of the West.” It said:

With a 212 foot drop and a width of 900 feet, it is one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States. The flows over the falls are seasonal runoffs from the mighty Snake River, which carves its way through deep basalt canyons and is the largest tributary to the Columbia River.

Needless to say, a sightseeing stop was in order!  This place really is incredible.
