The Idaho sky is an intriguing and mysterious being. A sudden hail shower demands respect, and sunsets captivate their audiences like a three act show.

Soda Springs Geyser. This is the only man-made geyser in the world. In an attempt to find hot water, a drill released the rushing water in 1937. Since the geyser was "throwing the world famous 'Old Faithful' Geyser off schedule, it was capped and set to go off on an hourly timer.

Not far from Arco, ID. Since 1949, there have been more nuclear reactors built here than anywhere else in the world.

July 17, 1955, the town of Arco was powered by atomic energy. An "Atoms For Peace" experiment.

Craters of the Moon National Monument. A land of volcanic ash.

Hollowed lava flow!

And icy caves.

Camping at the Sawtooth National Rec. Area. What an amazing place to explore! Our tent was set in a bed of flowers. Snow covered mountains formed the backdrop as we were lulled to sleep by the swollen river.

In an attempt to ride the river, Kristin entered the ice water. Aboard an inflated camping mat, she was unable to fight the current and caught hold of a fallen tree before heading into a six foot whirlpool!

Kristin's life was spared as Alfonso rescued her from the roaring waters!

Boise, Idaho

The Capital Building

At a local laundry mat, Jeanne Gustaves suggested The Depot as a "must-see"

A beautiful afternoon in the gardens at The Depot.

Before entering into Oregon, we came across a  faux Delorean. Back to the future, anyone?
