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.
We got on the road around ten and headed north on this road, 44 I think.
We were coming out of the high country dropping down into a desert.
We passed by some agriculture.
And some barren desert ground.
It got more desert the further we went. We headed east some to get over by Idaho.
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.
There were a number of trains moving along the roadside in this area.
We were coming into Montpelier where Marty and and Patti hoped to get a motel room for the night.
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.
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.
For those that don’t here’s the van camped for the night.
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.

Another great day of travel and now you can make your own decisions. Enjoy
Love the picture of the blue heron!
