The first thing Tony and I did before leaving Pinedale was to take in the Museum of the Mountain Man. Well worth the stop, too. It is the oldest Historical Society in the State of Wyoming with exhibits about the era of the mountain man, the Plains Indian, the Oregon Trail and the developments of this region. Even if you aren't into mountain men …
... at about 1 or 2 at a pull off and pulled the frozen chili out of the freezer and microed it for about10 minutes for a quick lunch of chili and crackers. Barb had some crackers and peanut butter and a yogurt. We pulled the chairs out and sat in the shade for about a half hour and then we were on our way again.
We pulled into Idaho Falls at about 5pm and we had to make a decision to stay at the Marriott or cancel our reservation and stay at ...
... back of these majestic mountains. We headed West again to a fairly primitive camp ground on BLM land on the South Fork of the Snake River, called Wolf Flats, near Ririe, Idaho. Wolf flats, like Tom Wolfe. Stunning! Golden Aspen and Cottonwoods, cliffs on both sides of the Snake and no people, except the few trout dry fly fishermen drifting on small dory like boats. Sadie loved barking at them as they lazily drifted ...
... but we have to get to the campsite while there is still light. On the way, we encounter a traffic jam and see two large bison as the cause. We crawl along in the line of traffic, the lead bison seems to have taken an interest in a blue minivan filled with a group of Asians. We ride along beside the bison, neck and neck, no more than 15 feet away, as it starts to charge the minivan! Feeling a bit exposed, we pass by the scene before witnessing the fate of the vehicle, a little ...
... lake that are the Platonic, perfect mountain range. The valleys surrounding the mountains are bursting purple and yellow with wildflowers. They smell of sage and are mysteriously shrouded in vast willow stands. Grizzlies, moose, pronghorn, bison, and elk roam the wilds. We have been here often and know intimately some of the secret spots for seeing moose. Since I promised Andrew a moose last night I decided to go to the road that lines the Gros Ventre River and there they ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN PLUS CottonTree Inn Idaho Falls
This Best Western was a breeze to find, easy check with helpful and friendly front desk personnel. Tony and I were put on the third floor where there wasn't as much foot traffic or highway noise, so we had a great nights rest. The beds were comfortable and the room spacious and clean. Located within a walking difference is a Denny's, Outback Steakhouse and Jake's Steakhouse. Plus the river and a walking path is very close to the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel.
