Postby mrwall1 » Mon Aug 03, 2015 7:36 pm

We just got back from a 2600 mile - 2 week Vacation with the Hitch n Haul. Fun Trip, We left our place north of Seattle around noon and made it to White horse Casino campground just outside of Pendleton, Or. first day with a quick stop in Ellensburg.... Then back through the Yakima Valley to Tri-Cities, lots of grapes!!

Image

We drove out of Oregon and Headed to Twin Falls Idaho, lots of Potatoes, Corn and Wheat fields We stayed at a KOA camp Ground, Saw some teardrops along the way!

Image

Image

We went to Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls and Watched the Base Jumpers jump off the Bridge, then off to Shoshone Falls! Amazing views

The Next day we went down to the Snake River and Launched the Kayaks, Hoping we could make it up the the Shoshone falls, but only made it to Piller Falls,

The next day we drove back west about 20 miles near Haggerman at Ritter Island and dropped in the River again near Thousand Springs,

We left Twin Falls and headed to Craters of the moon for a quick drive through.

Then we continued on to Grand Tetons! Best Views inside this Amazing Park

Beautiful country and enticing photos. Hope to make it back some day.

Looks like the flow at Shoshone Falls is heavier than the last several years. Was that due to spring rains or winter snows or both?
Has the heat wave and high pressure in the Pacific Northwest finally broken?

My great-grandparent operated the lodge at Shoshone in the 1890s and grandparents had a confectionary store at Soda Springs in the early 1900s.

Not sure, someone told me thought that when the water is higher you can get by pillar falls up to Shoshone, right now you have to carry the kayaks over quite a few big rocks.... when we got home last Thursday it was hotter at our house then anywhere we had been except for eastern Washington which was over 100.... This week, it has cooled down to the high 70s low 80s...

that is cool about great grandparents.... twin falls was a nice place.... close to a lot of things....

Thanks! we met a couple from Stonewall Texas when we were in Montana on their way to Washington, there were traveling with a small trailer... not a teardrop, they had never been to Washington, so there were happy to get to talk to us to find out some good places to go....

Hi Mike
Looks like you had a wonderful trip, and saw some awesome country. :thumbsup: One of your pictures shows that you ran into John & Denise along the way.
We look forward to meeting you guys somewhere down the road too.....Maybe Fall Crawl 2016. :thinking:
