When: 8/23 – 8/24

It was a brief stay in Idaho, so this will be a short post.

Where we stayed:

We stayed at at Juniper Campground, a Bonneville County Campground.  In general we’ve enjoyed the public campgrounds more than the private campgrounds and this was no exception.  It’s located along the Ririe River (we really need to get a kayak) near Idaho Falls. This is a scenic, well-kept campground with full-hookups and inexpensive ($18.00) to boot.

Who we met:

I’ll often strike up conversations while walking around the park. At Juniper, I met Hector Lopez – he and his wife have done a lot of travelling and he’s a professional photographer.  His photography is worth checking out.

Where we ate:

We ate at Morenita’s in Idaho Falls.  This is a cheap eats Mexican place.  Nothing fancy, but the staff was friendly, we all enjoyed our food and the price was right.  Given the chance, I’d eat there again.

What we did:

The highlight of the trip was riding our bikes along the river in Idaho Falls, pretty views, and lots of interesting sculptures.

There is also a beautiful Japanese garden. We talked to a guy working there who built the teahouse.  He really loves it and volunteers 20 hours a week and has been doing it for years.

We enjoyed our stay in Idaho and look forward to visiting again.
