On the Road in Twin Falls

Mr. Squash and I are on the road to Colorado!  Tonight finds us in Twin Falls, Idaho at a lovely B & B called The Fillmore Inn.  We're sitting out on the back deck in the most gorgeous yard, enjoying a perfect evening!


We had dinner a short ways away at a restaurant that overlooks the Snake River Canyon.  The photo above was taken from our table on the outside patio.  The water you see is the Snake River and there is a gorgeous golf-course that takes up both sides of the river.  Mr. Squash said it was so beautiful that he might consider wearing pastels and taking up golf (wink).  What looks like haze in the air is actually smoke.  There are enormous parts of Idaho on fire which blotted out most of the views on our drive here.
Here is a close-up of the bottom of the canyon and the golf course.  Click on the photo for a better look.

After dinner we were encouraged by Julie at the B &B to try and take in Shoshone Falls.  Thanks to our iPad, we found we weren't far and decided to go.  Gosh, I'm so glad we did!  The falls are at their lowest rate right now because of irrigation, but did not disappoint!
Here is a close-up of the largest part of the falls.  They also generate electricity.
This was looking down the Snake River Canyon the opposite way from the falls.  Gorgeous!  I haven't edited any of the photos, either.

We left home at 8am this morning and arrived here around 4pm.  We always make good use of rest stops and take our time.  It was a good day!  Tomorrow will find us somewhere in Utah - about a 6-7 hour drive.  Care to guess where we might stay the night?  A hint is it won't be a large city and the following day we'll be headed to I-70 and Denver.

Great photos! Glad you went to the Falls too :) I have no guesses except I don't think Mr. Squash prefers pastels.

I love the rugged yet smooth rocks of the falls. Just checked my map...will it be Provo? Happy Trails.

Have a wonderful trip! So glad you are feeling better. If Mr. Squash decides to try out those pastels, be sure to share those pictures with us - he is becoming quite well known for his sense of fashion!
