The trip from Twin Falls to here has a dramatic change in landscape. From barren, to high desert with scrub brush, to super sized irrigated fields of crops, to tall trees and everything in between.
|This is southern Idaho headed north. The interstate is still a few dozen miles away. That is the Snake River to the right.|
|On I-84 now. The landscape was surprisingly flat and stretches where no crops were being raised nor cattle running.|
|Beginning to see some mountains in the distance.|
|The Snake joined the interstate before the exit to Farewell Bend Campground|
|Freedom and Liberty in Farewell Bend State Recreation Area.|
|This was just a short walk from my campsite. That is the Snake as it makes its way to the east before turning north and comes back west at my next campground.|
|Getting on I-84 after leaving Farewell Bend|
|The mountains are beginning to show themselves more and more.|
|These smaller rolling hills were in the middle|
|The rolling hills have their own type of beauty.|
|I got lucky and took this picture of an abandoned house along the interstate. I've seen these everywhere in the country,,,, must mostly west of the Mississippi River.|
|My typical "long highway" picture.|
|Finally trees started showing up. I haven't seen tall trees since leaving East Texas.|
|More tall trees. I miss them.|
|Campsite at Hood Park. Not bad for $12.00 a day (senior pass).|
I'm off to do some exploring before the temperature gets too high. By the way, this Pacific Time Zone has me messed up real good.
Ya'll take care of each other. I'll Cya down the road.
