8/23/2012 (Idaho Falls, ID) If you noticed in our home page that part of our goal is to serve others as we travel. We haven’t posted any pictures or stories about this because we purposefully are enjoying summer, not to say we haven’t helped anyone along the way, but we haven’t been purposeful about it yet. As we settle into the “school year” and establish routines we will share stories of our encounters.
We headed North. We have 9 days to get to MN to visit my sister. Along the way we are planning to visit some of the national monuments Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, etc. It was nice to be back North where the temperatures are cooler. It was the first time in 6 weeks that we didn’t need to turn on the A/C.
We crossed the mountains on HWY 22 from ID to WY which almost proved too difficult on our truck. I wasn’t aware that there was a 10% grade up and down the pass. We didn’t over heat while climbing the pass, but any higher we would have. On the way down I realized the truck brakes were doing more work than the trailer, needed a little adjustment to get down the hill.
Not knowing exactly where we were going we went to Jackson Hole Ski resort and noticed the sky tram.
When we got to the top we were told to try the made to order waffles. We did…It’s not to often you can eat waffles at 10K ft.
