Idaho Falls, Idaho

 After leaving Jackson Hole Sat. afternoon...we decided to go a different route back to Salt Lake City. We drove over Teton Pass.....it was amazing.....
 Chuck and I both agreed....these Orange poles are here so motorists would know  where the edge of the road is, because in the winter they average over 450 feet of snow and you might not know where the edge is!! We might be wrong though.....
 Ugh.....we got stuck behind that motorhome......
 We saw lots of Farms and agriculture......
 We arrived in Idaho Falls......we parked right by this cute little park and I quickly noticed this awesome park bench.....
 I love reading about cities points of interest...and Idaho Falls is a big deal!!
 The falls are probably 1 mile long, no they do not fall from a high platform but just the sheer length of the falls makes them unique!!
 We parked and walked the length of the falls....it was a beautiful day too!!

 from the walkaway along the falls, you cannot help but see the Idaho Falls Temple in the background...
 The park was so pretty...lots of unique flowers....
 and Geese....or ducks......
 I tried petting them....but they wanted food!!
My last pic of the falls and after a quick lunch it was time to get going......What a wonderful trip...perhaps the best line from my hubby all week was this...as we were pulling into the rental car return in Salt Lake, "as much as I Love going on family vacations, going on trips with just the two of us mean so much to me too". I nearly cried....as I know how important keeping LOVE alive in a mature marriage is....to many married couples Young and Old do not work on keeping their relationship Alive!!!So that inspired me to make plans for more trips alone!!

Hello Jamie,
I love your post!
Too funny...I too just got home from a family vacation...

A girls only camping trip!!!

I cant believe how similar you and I are!
I also take pictures of signs with info on them. I love to stop and take pics of unusual things, like your bench.

Oh, so beautiful! I love all the falls and miss going to the mountains. You are so right about keeping the marriage alive as we become more mature :) Love that word.

I'm sorry I haven't been around lately......it's been a month of busy, happy, crazy around here!

I know my hubby says the same and I think a lot of good bonding comes back with just hubby and wife.

What a nice nudge for me. People ask where we're going this summer and I tell them we haven't made any plans. I guess we just hadn't thought about it. So thanks for the poke in the shoulder to get planning. Nice trip. Thanks for sharing it.
