First, though, we were in a place that we had visited, but only briefly. On our "50 shows-50 states-50 days" tour, we had spent the night in Idaho Falls but had to hurry on the next day to get to our next show. This time, we'll occasionally have a day to look around- and we knew we wanted to see more of Idaho Falls!
This is really a beautiful city. They've got a river with a gigantic waterfall running right through the center of town! Here's the start of the waterfall:
As you might imagine, a town with a name like Idaho Falls has lots of waterfall-related features all around town:
Of course, when you're in a new place, you have to see the places that the locals recommend. Here's a neat museum:
Thanks to Nida and Jim for the neat place!
When we travel, each member of our family has something they like to do every chance they get. Eli likes to play hide-in-the-fort-made-of-luggage:
Faith hunts for "pressed penny" machines:
When you drive along the Snake river, this is the scenery you see all day:
So, it was on to the Grand Tetons! Now, I should mention something here- when we did our tour which took us to all 50 states in 50 days, we had a number of folks who absolutely did not believe us. They blatantly said that we were making this up, that nobody could travel like that and do that many shows in that time frame. Well, we have photos, we have witnesses in every city, we absolutely did it!
I mention this because the photos that I'm about to show you were taken with our cell phone cameras, but this is such a beautiful area that they almost don't look real- it looks like we've been photoshopped into the backgrounds. I assure you these are very real!
Here are the Grand Tetons:
So, next is our show in Bozeman, Montana. We're looking forward to seeing all our friends there! On the way, though, we'll be passing right through YELLOWSTONE! We've heard some amazing things- can't wait!
