Idaho: Not Just Potatoes

Southern Idaho is farm country. The potatoes grown here are famous for good reason. And getting them locally is, of course, best. Whenever we could get them with our meal, we ordered potatoes and could taste the difference, whether in hash browns, french fries, mashed or baked.

But Idaho is more than potatoes. Venture northward and you’ll see some of the best wilderness in the country — even from the road. We’ve traveled State Route 75 and US 93 several times, and every time we do, we’re struck by the beauty of the rivers and mountains.

No more reading. Just look, and you’ll see.

  1. Been there and done that (albeit many years ago)! Alas, you two are living the life I once dreamed of when the kiddies left the nest. Life got in the way, and things changed, not ALL for the worse. Keep on keeping on, you two! And may there be many HAPPY TRAILS ahead of you!

      One of the big things we’ve learned in our 7 summers of full-timing is that it’s not a perfect lifestyle — nothing is. And no place seems to be the perfect place to settle down, either (at least for us). The good news is there are more nooks and crannies to explore in this vast land that any one person (or couple) could manage in a dozen lifetimes, so there’s always another route to take, another spot to visit. If you’d asked me 25 years ago if I could see myself doing this I’d wonder how it would ever come about. Life has an amazing way of steering us around, doesn’t it?
