Bend to Salt Lake City

We have been traveling a lot more than usual as we make our way back to Texas, so I am behind in posting and will try to catch up. Then, to make matters worse, when I have had time to write the blog, our internet connection was too slow to post.

We left Bend and drove to Burns, Oregon for one night, then drove to Wendell, Idaho the next day.  While at Wendell, we traveled to Twin Falls in the afternoon to catch this fabulous view of the Snake River.

We drove to Shoshone Falls and were really glad we did.  The water wasn't flowing a lot, but it was still pretty.  There were several trails we took to get different glimpses of the falls and rocks.

We also had no idea until we came here that this was the place Evel Knievel unsuccessfully attempted to jump over the Snake River on a rocket cycle in 1974.

The next day we drove to Salt Lake City and spent three nights.  I spent most of my time at the Family History Library and Jim played golf.

We spent one afternoon in the mountains look for fall foliage and we were successful!

The color show was a real treat for us!  It's not something we see regularly in Texas.

The mountains were covered with the shades of fall.

It's time for our next stop, Moab, Utah!
