Leaving Yellowstone at about 7am on Wednesday morning it was very cold, good day to be in the car.
It wasn't long at all before we crossed into Idaho:
The sun was shining beautifully but it was still very cold.
We passed several fields of the Famous "Idaho Potatoes":
Our destination for today was Twin Falls Idaho.
It was about a 5 hour drive, which wasn't very eventful at all. Not much to see until we got just outside Twin Falls & we crossed this very high bridge across Snake River Canyon:
|Snake River Canyon|
|Notice how small the Semi Looks!|
We had also heard about Shoshone Falls which was 5 miles out of Town, As we were too early to check into our Motel we decided to go there first:
|Well worth the $3 fee to get in.|
|Nearly as good as Niagara Falls|
|A Friendly local|
We also check out the lake that feeds the falls - great spot for a Family outing:
|This guy could really pick his spots to talk |
on his phone!
|Flat out resting!|
We went for a walk later on & Dave spotted his new " Dream Truck":
|Makes him look like a midget!|
|Believe me if he could get it home he would, it's only $57,000 USD|
South Lake Tahoe is just over the border in California - Lake Tahoe is in Nevada, which is the state we spent most of out days travels in.
The scenery was mostly Desert:
There were a few little Casino towns in the middle of nowhere:
|They just seem to pop up in the middle of the Desert!|
Then after it was Pine Forrest's:
|You don't see these signs in Australia!|
As we got closer to Lake Tahoe we got some glimpses of the Lake - Wow it is huge!
When we got there we walked down to have a look - it was very windy & I'm sure the water was freezing but it looked beautiful:
This was just a stop over on our way to Yosemite National Park.
Cheers for now Shell
