Well, we had to move on and move we did. We were not too far from the Wyoming/Idaho state line and it was our intention to head straight across Idaho as fast as possible. It's not that we don't like the place, it's just that we couldn't find anything to do there that looked interesting. Wendi and I both agree that it was a pretty dismal looking place with is treeless rolling hills covered only with sagebrush. We had this vision that (pardon the stereotyping) Indians were going to swoop down from the sandy hills above and attack us. All of us on the highway would have to circle the vehicles and fight them off . . . OR think Clint Eastwood and the spaghetti westerns - that's what most of Idaho looked like to us. However, there were some nice agricultural areas where the Snake River flowed through and was used for irrigation. Yes, that's right, there are lots and lots of potatoes in the fields. It was fun to keep meeting up with the Snake River though and we could see why this river helped to open up this territory in the early days. Check out this link that should be Idaho's state anthem.
