Utah, Wyoming, Idaho to Montpelier Idaho Where We Split

Friday August 18, 2017 Montpelier Idaho

This is our last day together

As we were sitting at our camp by the reservoir this morning, this great blue heron flew in and  landed on a tree near us. That seemed to be it’s spot and it didn’t like our presence in the area. It kept up a short squawk letting us know we were not welcome.heron1

 

We got on the road around ten and headed north on this road, 44 I think.road2

 

We were coming out of the high country dropping down into a desert.road3

 

We passed  by some agriculture.road4

 

And some barren desert ground.road5

 

It got more desert the further we went. We headed east some to get over by Idaho.road6

 

No cherry bombs

We stopped for a break at the Wyoming, Idaho border in this spot. Marty and I went across the street to check out the fireworks for sale. They didn’t have the cherry bombs I wanted, not legal to sell.idaho9

 

There were a number of trains moving along the roadside in this area.road7

 

Montpelier

We were coming into Montpelier where Marty and and Patti hoped to get a motel room for the night.road8

 

They got a motel and went out to dinner while I sat in my van and made some plans. When they came back from dinner I informed them I’d be moving on by myself headed for the Jarbidge area south, while they headed to visit some friends North.

We said our goodbyes and I headed out stopping to tank up with gas on the way.

Tonight’s camp

My plan was to go out highway 30 which we’d been traveling for about 20 miles to a little place called Georgetown and turn right a few miles until I got up into the national forest to find a camp spot.

That’s what I did and drove into this spot where there were some hunter type camps. The van is parked back there if you have good eyes.vancamp

 

For those that don’t here’s the van camped for the night.camp

 

Plans

Tomorrow I plan to drive to Twin Falls Idaho and catch highway 93 south to the Jarbidge area.

That was my day for a good one.
