Tuesday 25 May 2010---We left Heyburn, ID on a bright sunny day, after deciding to take a back road, US 30 up to Hagerman. Our goal was to get to Hagerman before noon, where we were interested in seeing the Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument. We stopped at the Ranger station, only to find it’s closed on Tuesday and Wednesday---however, they had their stamps and information outside in a wooden box, so Charlie and I got to stamp our Passports. Just past Hagerman, we crossed the Snake River again and saw several small waterfalls.

A little way down the road, we got back up on I- 84. We stopped at a rest area and ate lunch. Our travels took us through Boise, ID where we picked up another back road, 55. We followed a beautiful stream full of rocks north to McCall, ID, where we had planned to stop for the night at the Ponderosa State Park.

On the way to McCall, we saw three men kayaking on the river, where Gena took some pictures.

Charlie called to see if we needed reservations at Ponderosa SP, and was told “no, just come”. However, once there, we found out due to the snow a few days ago, the park won’t open until Thursday this week. So, we kept on heading north and found another campground in New Meadows, ID. We were greeted by a very small red fox at the entrance of the campground.

Kerry is busy getting our dinner going on the grill---we do eat well. Tomorrow we keep going north to Spokane, WA and more adventures.

You have already seen so much, done so much, that I wonder how you will be able to continue seeing what is yet to come. Stay safe, enjoy.
